Surrendering to my god

I have such a hard time surrendering to what I cannot see;
and in this, sight becomes my God

Balance

The space of self is hallowed, not to be denied;
the space of “us” is hallowed, not to be denied

The forever bullseye

I.
I alone know precisely how to tend;
the others approximate or miss
I am the forever bullseye

II.
so if it is a bullseye
lo, it is I

Fingers from ears
Wake up!

So strange when others find me valuable!
Different mirrors, I argue
Same reflection, they respond
