An Experiment

This is an experiment —
An act of faith,
A show of face,
A show of colors.
A dash of ego? No, never that.
A little vanity? Perhaps.
But to be loved, do we not need
To first love ourselves?
They say that hell is other people,
But I have learned
That it’s as likely to be
Found in their absence.
So this is me, blindly,
Full of hope,
Reaching out
To you.
