Are You Not?

Are you not the moon?
Are you not a reflection of the shine from the stars?
Are you not the lullabies a mother sings to her child?
Are you not the esoteric display of love in family-made monikers?
Are you not unadulterated laughter erupting from child’s play?

Are you not the whispers of the wind?
Are you not the flutter in a butterflies wings?
Are you not the pride in a peacocks feathers?
Are you not the calm of a sleeping ocean?
Are you not the magnificent alignment of the planets?

Are you not the sparkle of jewels in a crown?
Are you not the author of kings & queens?
Are you not a metaphor?
Are you not a sunset stained sky?
Are you not Enough?

– Smyekh David-West.
