    i wish to be someone
    other than
    the person that i am
    but what do
    i do to change?
    i search my soul
    for the the right response
    from myself
    about myself
    & the way that i should go
    i want to be
    worthy
    but i feel
    like nothing
    personified
    or maybe
    i am so many things
    at once
    that i am
    undescribable -
    a woman in
    revolution of self?
    i tuck away
    the failure
    & insecurities
    & contempt
    that i feel
    & in the process
    lose some facets of my true self...
    so strange,
    so sad,
    the beauty of me -
    my depth
    & substance
    & pathos
    for my brutha & sista
    dwells
    so deeply
    within me
    that perhaps my
    love seems hidden
    from those who seek it from me
    or perhaps it is
    so close
    to the surface
    of me
    that no one
    can really
    see
    the worth
    of me -
    not even me

    This exact same thing I used to believe
    but I was reminded then of my BEAUTY
    and so I'm here to say to you
    you are truly BEAUTIFUL too
    to express yourself in such a way
    shows insight inside you that you may
    not have realized
    open your eyes
    and see your worth
    ever since birth
    you were special, or you would not be here
    Almighty makes no mistakes, don't fear
    it's simply a time to make a change
    to better yourself and rearrange
    your ways to become better still
    I pray for you and always will
    that you will find all that you are
    is a glowing, vibrant, shining STAR!!!

    PEACE LOVE JOY

    twofish,

    thank u for your reply. i don't mean to give the impression that i am an unhappy, unsaved soul, because that is the furthest thing from the truth. i do however have moments, in the midst of trying times, when i soul search."i am nothing" is the result of such a moment. it makes me feel good to know that the members of this family care so much about one another and today i truly feel like i am one of the fam!!!! thanks for the luv!

    dee
