Finding Your Self - Poem by James W. Washington, Jr.

Finding your self in this life is your greatest task to perform, until
You begin to make the search, you are left alone. When you decide to
Start, be it now or then, close your eyes to the out side world and
Start your search from with in.
Some folk have been searching for then selves among their relatives
And friends but each time they miss them selves and have to start
All over again.
Try reflecting on this again, again , and again; you will never know
Your self until you search with in.
