I look into your eyes and see, there,
where you have been
and what it has taken
for you to be where you now are.
What courage, what willingness to take the noble
path of truth commands your heart.
This truth which compels you to want to be yourself
is a burning fire within you.
It tolerates no falseness, no self-abandonment
in the ways that it once did.
Now, all excuses are becoming transparent
as it commands your heart
to speak plainly,
to live truthfully,
to follow the path that God
has laid out within you.
May this path be blessed.
