full text of poem:
5th day and the Facade is starting to crack Top coat peeling off Enamel chips away In seemingly random chunks.
Look closer and you’ll find Glossy gives way to matte Layers upon layers To reveal a glorious pattern That is uniquely yours.
Remember when Rumi asked, And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?
