SELF-PUZZLE


My poems are tiny pieces of me
Tiny jigsaw puzzle pieces of me
A puzzle that never was complete
I puzzle meant for me to finish

My poems are a puzzle
To help me find my self
The puzzle a mirror
To see my fractured self

My poems are telling pieces of me
My life a jigsaw puzzle to complete
Only I can do it right
To choose and identify
The last remaining pieces
To form a true picture
The final true picture of me
Whole, Beautiful, Free

    Hope it all falls into place as you so much deserve; still I'm enjoying trying to assemble some of the pieces just to get an idea of what beauty's lurking in these..

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
