lift up your head

Sunflower (Helianthus L). Słonecznikand do you remember
the day you lay in the dark
and wondered if your eyes were open or closed
and I said

lift up your head

and do you remember
the day you tottered across the road
weary eyed, trying to see what was coming
and I said

lift up your head

and in this moment
you have believed the lie
of the worth the world gives
but I say
(as I’ve always said)
you are my treasure

lift up your head

  1. Beautiful in its simplicity. When weighed down by the cares of life we all need reminders to lift up our heads and truly see aright. The sunflower image fits this perfectly. Thanks, Lucy! 🙂
