I am not perfect
         not like this sunrise
                   and I shall not live half as long
                             as the sun
    nor shall I ever sing as softly
         as does the wind through my hair
              but I still
                        that I
                                                  can be


                             In knowing this
      I am content
                                                        and so I

                                                                 can't you?

Some times
when I drift away
I end up some place

Do you ever ask yourself why something makes you react a certain way? Do you ever ask yourself why you cry when you hear a certain kind of music? I do. I wonder. Why should something so soft make me cry? Why should something so sweet make me ache? Why should something so beautiful.... why? I think the potential answers are as varied as they are fascinating and I quiver to think of all the things, bad and good, that they could say about me. There is something about being able to analyze such an open, beating heart that I find... well, I find it to be spectacular. You could, if you wanted, listen to that song and read the poem and this description... and begin to see a faint glimmer of me. Exposed.

I'd like to believe that this is me, at my core.

I'm lost for words here...
Coming to peace with oneself and the world is so seemed to manage well.
I think one can learn so much about people by the way they react to certain music or films, or whatever...only few people care to take a closer look...
And your poems and descriptions contain a part of yourself. You expose yourself (or at least a "faint glimmer" of you) through your art for those who care to look behind the words...

(I'm really not good at expressing what I feel right now...)

Awww :heart:
Thank you! And yes, inner peace is definitely something quite hard to come by and I am rather proud of myself for eventually managing it in my own life and my head.
This is very true - I think that our interests and our reasons for them say a lot about us - as much as our actions and words do.
I do try to give as much of myself as I feel is relevant or appropriate, as it goes a long way to helping someone understand my mindset and mood in my writing ^.^
I'm pleased that you can see me :heart:
