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

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
