Ibrahim Ibn Salma


Self-Compassion


Walking down the alley,
Glimpsing of the passerby; the
Stranger that looks like
Me.

No, it is me.

Passed by thousands
Times before,

Un-noticed,
Un-spoken to,
Un-loved.

Ignored for another.

*

But this time I notice,
I greet myself,
I invite me
To a cup of tea,
A stroll upon the
Redolent shore of life - together,
Holding hands,
Hugging,
Loving
The one inside my skin.
