Relearning To Be Me


In the past
I tried too hard to please others
When it came to feelings
I'll put theirs before my own
Changing my own being

A lost identity
But for friends there
To help uncover
become more aware

Opening up and releasing
Letting go if you will
Discovering again
How to be me fulfilled

I couldn't have done it alone
Releasing the scars
I thank you
You know who you are

    This is beautiful jojo, and most especially that you open up and let it out and shared it here.....We are works in progress, are we not? Each day a new awakening to who and what we really are...I've years on you and I've yet to figure it all out, not even sure if I've begun........love this one so much.....It's an upbeat jojo in this one.~~~~~~love, marci.xxo (Report) Reply

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
