Look, See

Dear All,

One of my core beliefs is that we must first search for and find our authentic selves before we can really thoroughly evaluate choices that come our way throughout life.  Here is a poem I wrote about knowing ourselves.

Peace,
Bernie


LOOK, SEE
by Bernie Siegel, MD

We can’t know each other until we know ourselves.
Who are we?

Does the mirror tell the truth?
No, it does not see inside me.

Only I know how beautiful my inner garden is,
I bloom and blossom unseen by anyone but the divine—how sad.

Raise the blinds,
let the neighbors see the real me.
