The Real Me


The Real Me
What does that mean
Is it who I am when I'm with my friends?
Is it who I am when I'm with my family?
Is it who I am when I'm at church?
Who Am I?

Am I daddy's little girl?
Am I the annoying little sister?
Am I the woman running from life?

Who knows who the 'real me' is?

God knows!

God,
Please show me,
I want to know!

I am tired of searching,
I am tired of running
most of the time in the wrong direction
But most of all
I am tired of fighting

I am your child,
Your daughter.

I am a beautiful woman
With a passion for life,
with a passion for people,
with a passion for You!

Thank you God,
You just made it all clear
I finally know the Real Me.

    You pose timeless questions in this poem about the meaning of life. I guess we're all a mixture of people, wearing different masks, depending upon what situation we find ourselves in. I like the way you've approached your subject and it certainly sounds like you've found your answer. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
