Consider

 

She heard them say it

Say it convincingly

 

Be yourself!

Believe in yourself!

They said exactly that—Convincingly

 

Did they ever consider?

Was the question asked?

 

Is it possible to know yourself?

If all your life, you’ve been something else?

Can you become what you’ve never been—within

What you’ve never seen

 

She has laid her head down— asleep

For in this … She can dream.
