The "god" is my positive male role model in my psyche. I see him as beautiful (see picture) and supportive.

the god

by paula bishop


the god holds me
whispers in my ear
"I love every part of you.
You are like a multi-faceted jewel,
a flower with many petals,
each petal more beautiful than the last,
deepening as you unfold and bloom.
You are a precious gift to all who know you.
And not all who know you realize this
because you've caught yourself
in a web of insecurities.
I keep trying to pull you through
so that you can fly free...
