Finding Yourself - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

Of all the people that you may know
There is one who remains an embryo
You will never meet them face to face
Because you are standing in their place

When you stop to think... you will seek
Asking yourself, what makes you unique
As life passes through a continuing turnstile
Identity changes like the shadow of a sundial

When you are asked to describe your being
It is difficult to pinpoint what you are seeing
You see yourself in the eyes of those who look
Scanning their notes in an observation book…

No two chapters will be exactly the same
Each person sees you in a different frame
All that you can find of yourself is a reflection...
A variety of appraisals derived by connection

Within a searching mind, your vision is vast
Someone inside is waiting to be released at last
Finally there is an emergence of your worth
Find your significant self... then experience birth
