Song: I See, Love.

A song of self-love written in 2017.

At The Bliss Loft aka my humble abode during rehearsal for Open Homes

A poem I wrote for the Open Homes 2017 Performance (Singapore International Festival of Arts), inspired by a lifetime of insecurity from a birth defect with my eyes (divergent strabismus) — corrected at 30.

I’m…I’m no longer

I’m…I’m no longer

That little girl

with eyes..eyes…eyes that stare

Yet they weren’t there

I’m…I’m no longer

I’m…I’m no longer

That young lass

with a mind..mind..mind so bold

Yet a gaze from her soul

I’m…I’m no longer

I’m…I’m no longer

That woman

with achievements…. so clear

Yet peered with fear

Now, now….I see love

Now, now….I see me

Now, now….I see love

Now, now….I see me

I am Here. I am Free.

I am Here. I am Free.

(Switch over to kiirtan, mantra of love)
