Poetry to Inspire

Day 30 of NaPoWrMo – the final day of an interesting process. I chose to share a poem I wrote on January 31, 2013

WHO I AM

 All of us are multi-layered,

a complex, unique mixture;

ever-changing, growing and learning,

never a permanent fixture.

 

Who we are is a perception

to others, of what they see:

our job, our skill, our relationships,

but is that truly you and me?

 

Do I know who I really am?

Am I sure who I’m meant to be?

Have I allowed others expectations

to mold my personality?

 

Nobody knows what I’m thinking,

nor what I’m about to say.

Only God knows my inner thoughts

and hears when I silently pray.

 

I’m a unique individual

on whom gifts have been bestowed,

and talents I’m to share with the world

before I reach the end of my road.

 

That’s who I am.
