Reliving What I See - Poem by Lyn Paul

How long does it take... to know who you are?
The roads you have travelled. You have come so far.
These roads were often rough with huge hills to climb,
The roads that moulded your life over the years and in time.
In time you learnt that there has been reason for it all,
The challenges placed in front of you and the landing after the fall.
I look and I see... so many roads ahead,
I see a huge future before... I am pronounced dead.
Seeing others suffer makes us know we can survive,
Giving great reason for being alive.
For I see my own hill that I know I must climb,
I know I will get to the top yet I know it will take time.
I close my eyes sometimes, .. not knowing where I want to be,
Feeling a huge sense of reliving what I see.
De'ja Vu, Hey I've been there... and seen it before,
I've lived this life once and have come for more.

    To the question in the first line, it takes very long, often life-long even then it results in the confused judgement of oneself! these are deep lines:
    For I see my own hill that I know I must climb,
    I know I will get to the top yet I know it will take time.

    a beautiful poem after the gap in writing!
