Imagine…..

By Sherry Greer

Imagine

Darkness

Low self-worth

Isolation

Why me?

Imagine, looking in the mirror and hating the reflection and how you feel

1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 1 year, 5 years, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50.

Yes, 50 years of why do I have to be this way?

What should I do?

Where should I go?

Should I even be here?

Do I even want to be here?

Fighting, fighting that internal conflict

I have to make a decision…

I want to be here

I have to be here…for me, my wife, my son, my family

Break through the cocoon of self-doubt, years and layers.

I see the light

I reach for it, I see it, here I come

I look into the mirror once again

I am beautiful!

I love myself

I love others

I love expressing who I am

Oh, the joy of being feminine, girly!

The makeup

The hair

The dresses

The shoes

The feeling of being free to be you

Finding others like you

Finding others who want to help and love who you are

Not having to look over your shoulder anymore out of fear if being seen

Imagine, truly loving yourself for the first time, loving yourself for the first time,

Loving yourself for the first time

But, where do I go from here?

I don’t know, I don’t know but I will be happy getting to that destination

I ask one question… Look into the mirror and imagine…

Stay beautiful – Sherry

This pleases me greatly. That Sherry wrote this. That I brought it to the eyes of a few hundred people all around the world. That this makes her happy. That this makes me happy. That we are who we are. That we are wonderful women. That we want to be the best women we can be!! Be happy!! Be you.

  2. Jocelyn/Tina,
    Thank you so much for the kind words, they mean a lot. There’s so many layers to this self discovery and I know there’s more yet to peel away. Even though you cannot see my inner beauty I know it is more radiant then what you can see. Everyone should be able to be what they want to be!
    Stay beautiful-Sherry
