i stand outside of myself


what do other people see ~

do they read beneath the words i write


sit beside me while i dream?


can i be seen for the person i truly am


the person i want to be


do they only see what they choose to see


dismiss the isolated


i strive to set free?

    I can resonate with you in this. It’s so painful.

    The journey inwards is the most difficult one of our lives, yet the most rewarding one. This blog offers so much encouragement in taking that journey.

      Thank you. I am afraid i am not fond of the journey. I write about doing it and thinking about it, but doing it is another matter.

    Your thoughts have been very similar to mine over the past day. I have written many posts and were too afraid to post them, so into the trash they went. I wish I knew the answers though ♥

    I suppose we will never know. I suppose that we are perceived as whatever we choose to let out and maybe what people want to see or believe. Great poem. 🙂

      Thank you:) i was feeling philosophical.

    Absolutely truthful. I truly appreciate the flow of this. That same thought crosses my mind quite often as well… I would imagine every writer deals with some version of a doubt that their message from the work may be glossed over.

      Tis true, as well as, tis true in life. Doth knowth well;)

    Excellent questions, some if not all I ask myself. I really enjoyed this. Thank you. Love, Amy

      Thank you. Sometimes i think too too much;)

        OH, if you could read my mind, you would know I am in the same boat as you are. LOL Love, Amy

    People can only see who THEY are when they look at others. It can’t be any other way. We see from our own world view and experience. That colors everything.

      Yes it does:) xx
