Being Seen by Jackie Dumaine


In the end, we all want to be seen.

Even when we try to hide behind our own shadow.

We all want to know that we matter.

And that we are enough, just as we are.


We are the same.

You and me .

Me and you.

Mirrors to our pain and our joy. 

Our grief and our triumph. 

Our tears and our laughter.

Our fear and our love.


When I really see you and you really see me,

Something inside of us shifts.

Our hearts open and our souls smile.

And in that moment, we know that we are understood.
