I WISH YOU SEE

If only I were your mirror
Showing you your reflection
You will see the beauty right here
And extinguish your fears
As skilled firemen kill their dangers

II
I wish you see
The bold you
Who like Sampson
Battle the lions of every breath
The fearless soul
Who like David
Conquer all Goliaths
With just a catapult and stones
The adorable spirit
Who like Nelson Mandela
Submit to cuffs emasculating
Just to score a moral point
And climb to the Everest of positions
To write his name on the vast sky
Never to be forgotten
I wish you see
I wish you see

III
I wish you see
The beautiful bloom in full daylight
Surrounded by shadows hailing and covetous
Loved by hearts seen and unseen
Watched by legs crawling, walking and running
I wish you see
I wish you see

IV
I wish you see
The praying mantises praying with their last breaths
For half of what you are
I wish you see
I hope you see

V
You are looking into muddy waters
With a revered reflection
Look here
Look into me
To see you
The you that is
The you who is
The you who have always been
Perfect
