In the Tracks of the Tracker magazine - Winter-Spring 1994

Fact to Face
Jacqui Jerzab

Perhaps it isn't that I yearn
or mourn so much for things to
be the way they were not,

But more so for them to never have
been so harsh.

When pointed clearly out to me that what
I tenaciously cling to was not always so.

I met head on the startling reality of my
naive capability to live a lie.

And isn't that what I've been struggling
to discover?

Face to Face, the real and naked me - without
a cover.

Introduced repeatedly to self and with bitter
disappointment scoffed at the irony
of searching.

Only to begin the quest for yet another truth
which must lie only one layer deeper in my mind.

At last, Face to Face I get to see that I
have always been the same, and even in the
victory of enlightenment self - the same again.

And isn't that what I've been searching
to discover?
Who I was, before I had a Mother.
