I Am Who I Am

Sunset on a Plane
Sunset on a Plane

If I yell as loud as I can and I only get laughed at – is that a reason to shut up?

If my voice isn’t heard because you can’t hear – is that a reason to quit trying?

If I tell you exactly what I am and you think I’m someone different – does that mean that I’m not who I think I am?

I am who I am, who I’ve been, who I’ll be,

I am who I am and that’s good enough for me

I walk these dusty roads and I’ve seen it all before

I meet the same people different towns, different names

They move their lips, same words come out nothing much has changed

They are who they are, who they’ve been, who they’ll be,

They are who they are and that’s good enough for me

The long journey home many miles many trials

Is it the same for every soul?

Learning to crawl, digging deeper, unleashing the truth, discarding the worthless, coming closer to perfect love

The road has been covered with ice, my heart has melted and the way home is clear

It’s warm, and toasty, and safe, and real.  Wish I had worked harder, sooner

We are who we are, who we’ve been, who we’ll be,

We are who we are…our destiny.

Blessitude

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Happy happy birthday to The Momma!!! I too wish I had worked harder, sooner. But hey, at least I learned that “when you know better, you do better!”. Blessings to you both sweet soul.

  2. Did I miss your Birthday?

    happy Birthday!

    The gift I see in you is love and peace and rippling rainbows of joy.
    The gift I see in you is a river of wisdom flowing freely, nourishing and nurturing all.
    The gift I see in you is friendship.

    PS — I love the questions at the beginning of your poem — and how you answer them to gently and beautifully at the end.
