Who I Am - June 1, 2010

Who I Am

I went searching for answers to all of the questions
I held inside the deepest part of my soul
The answers I found were simultaneously bright and dark
Such bittersweet wisdom my heart does now hold

I am now filled with a vivacious feeling of freedom
I have never known in my life before
Enlightened by the light of reason that I now can see
Opening up locked gates and closed doors

In the past I have attempted to fill every empty space
That I saw looking back in the mirror at me
Now I have found those empty places not to be lacking
As I have found all I ever wanted and need

The answers I have found are both bitter and sweet
They glow with an expounding truth
As I have found how to be happy with who I am
And accepted that I will never be like you

There is such great freedom in knowing and accepting who you are. And when others can do the same for you that freedom becomes even greater.

This is so beautiful and something that many people struggle to do for most of their lives. I have never understood how anyone can expect to be loved and accepted....if they do not love and accept themselves first.

Well if you don't know who you are, I sure do, you are Brilllliant

What more can I say than this.
You have touched my heart with this poem. It was so hard to come to the point that you have. Like you,I am so truly glad that I didn't quit the journey.
