Being Myself Again - Poem by Melissa Koeman

I realized that I wasn’t myself anymore
The world was passing me by
I lost myself in misconceptions
Lost myself in strange illusions
It felt like I was on the outside looking in
And I couldn’t reach myself
Nothing felt right
And still it doesn’t feel right for 100 percent
I want to get back to being myself again
But can I go back to being my old self?
Did I change?
Maybe I lived a lie all that time that I was my “old self”
And I can't go back to “being myself again”
Now I still remain in the search of myself
In search of my identity...

    This one is not a poem but a narrative piece of prose. Still, your reason behind the writing is evident. You are reciting the events in your life, along with your actions and reconsider. Correct thinking and reciting. (Report) Reply

    a great tale of discovery
    searching for your True Self
    through the maze of existence
    and the search shall go on and on
    until; a taste of certainty
    makes it all right
    a fine poem
