Skin and Truth

Hello friends-

Here’s a poem from several years ago, hope you like it.

Years of stretching

and pulling

Endless tossing

and turning

All the questions,

doubts and

complete denial

Seeking and searching

for your approval

Feeling alone, rejected,

an outcast

Looking for understanding

and acceptance

Your face was blank,

nothing, a void

Running and hiding…

I thought from you?

I did not fit!

Out of Style!

Out of date?

The years have made

you soften

The roughness of

your edges are slowly


Truth, it finally came to me…

The most unexpected of


-Within me-

Not my reflection in a mirror

Not an action or expression

-My heart, my very soul-

I had not accepted me

My obstacle in life has

begun to fade.
