Know It

So I’ll start
and try to wear
this face
more openly
and unmasked,
and try with
more honesty
to accept
what I’ve had,
for so many years,
such difficulty
in accepting.
To not be
so harsh
on all its
imperfections
I am so used
to criticizing,
even if only
internally,
when I see
in the mirror
this face I wear,
now for so,
so many years,
you’d think,
by now,
I would have
grown to know it.
