Getting Nowhere


-unknown author-

On being a mother;

i shelter and protect, put there needs first

i lose myself and i lose respect.

this is how i became me

i am alone

so where has it gotten me

On being a wife

i gave him all of my life

i am a shadow of my former self

and he dares to tell me

i am not myself

this is how i became me

i am support

but where has it gotten me

On being a friend

i encourage and share my secrets with them

i lose trust and they unbalance my zen

and they say i act like

i am better than them

this is how i became me

i am therapist

but where has it gotten me

On being a co-worker

i work hard and play for the team

i get stepped on and passed over

i am depressed and never listened to

this is how i became me

i am angry

but where has it gotten me

On being me

I give the world a part of me

but i am shunned

and questioned, never given a second look

yet i give life, i give love

i think i am the lady, i am suppose to be

quiet, strong and forgiving

but with all this

this is how i became me

i am an unhappy me

but where has it gotten me?

Don’t let this world; or anyone play with your head
That includes you…
Don’t let the world or others; influence how you see yourself
.
Stop shunning yourself;
doubting yourself
no one should love you
more than you love yourself
.
Tossing is uncomfortable
Turning is not the same as change
You are not unreasonable
.
Right now… You are irreplacable
Someone knows your beautiful
Skin color, blemishes, stretch marks and dark spots;
No concern
The thin, thick or in between you
No matter how you look
someone has love to give to you
.
Somewhere
the only thing you would want is love in return
Stop asking yourself
Who would, who could
love me, want me
.
Feel secure in you
Even after months of dedicated work
On being a better you
Do you say to yourself?
“I love you”
.
You are monetary
Rich now; that was unavailable
You are stability
worlds falling apart
Yet your insurance and safety
.
You’re sanctuary
day runs smooth; make this world make sense
Never give you up, know what you have
Comprehend whats worth fighting for
.
You worry about being a mom
Being better than yours
Loving better than yours
Letting your seed know you love her
Dont worry ma…
She knows
.
No one to replace you
Dont think you excel in some areas
And fall in others
you are far beyond that level
.
Just be you
Live with you
Live with this life you made
Its yours after all
.
You are
independent, strong…
.
You can leave a legacy.
Working hard alone is never wrong….

“Thoughts – 28”


There is remorse
in having to admit
The kinks in your armor
Any sign of weakness
Spilling of your soul
Something hurtful to confess
A spot of soft flesh.

Putting anything on the line
Out in the open
There are riddles
That should be left unspoken
Examples of not being

All you can be
How can you live with not being you
Truly…

Another one for the pile
Of interrogation
On the subject of…

“Who should I be?..”
