Realest Self

Realest Self

A Poem by Karoline Lesande

Little one you'll be just fine, 
you're on the mend so give it time.
They've shot their arrows through your heart, 
piece by piece pulled you apart.
But they don't know you, just knew of you, 
your soul is fierce and always true.
Small warrior keep this in mind, 
there's beauty in this earth to find.
With every heartache, every loss, 
you'll grow strong and find your cause.
A unicorn, a magic elf, just dare to be your realest self.

There's always someone out there to knock you down, though usually they want to be you.
The old adage always rings true. What doesn't kill you will make you stronger?

Thank you :) Heartache sucks but at least we can grow from it.
This is so lovely, it shows how talented you are. When a piece is written from personal experience, it will have genuine emotions and depth. I really enjoyed this read, it brought good feelings.

You are welcome ❤️
It was actually my first time reading a poem about Unicorns describing as their inner child.
When you said: "Little one you'll just be fine, your heart will mend, give it time," one of the first things that came in my mind is that you're talking about your current life. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So far, right after I read your poem it gave me a sense of hope about finding one's cause.

Thank you and yes, you are correct. I'm so glad you understood the meaning :)
Broken hearts can mend and you can grow stronger as a result of the knocks in life. All part of life's rich tapestry. Spoken poetically and enjoyed.
