The Mirror of a Seer

Revelation through reflection

Magical transformation

Seeing within the present

without lamentation,

and while the unknown

is yet to be seen,

unlocking the mystery

holds the key

to endless possibilities,

and by seeing

beyond the horizon,

knowing the unknown

can help a person realize

how much one has grown

with no need for a disguise,

and then as the

lifelong narrative

continues after the sun sets,

finding a way

to make the next day

even better than the day before

can assuage the fear

of what life has in store,

so dare to open a door,

and simply see

with ingenuity
