Being Myself.

Being created by Love
To love life,
I grow daily
To love being myself.
Not ashamed
Of this fact, I no longer strive
To be some passionless
Grey soul, with helpless
Needs. - I feed on life.
Am 'passion revived'.
Wild joy overtakes me
At times, - elates me.
Pulsating energy
Helps me survive.
Infuses delight.
Transports me freely
To find, at the least excuse
A broad smile.
I know passion should
Never be joyless.
Passively giving in
Is defiling
To the 'me' that is myself now.
Quite buoyant
Am I, yet subtlely quiet
Inside, - cloaked
In commitment to love.
Heartbeat submitting
To nothing but pleasure
In giving, I now
Celebrate me, willingly.
Recycled maybe - - but
I like the new 'me'.

    We age, we experience more of life, we take in what we like, if the mix is right we must improve. But if we learn to love what life offers, notice all its charms, learn its lesson of share with all, we become a lovely caring person, just like you. I agree with you life is great.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
