    The Story of Me

    The story of me:
    Those I love.
    Past lives,past husbands and wives,
    people I've known along the way.
    Moments both good and bad,
    times both happy and sad,
    have all helped make me this way.
    Times I could'nt stop laughing,
    times I could'nt stop crying,
    times I felt like I was dying inside and
    days when I felt I could touch the sky.
    Thoughts both profound and random,
    dreams,visions,revelations,
    fears, doubts,and wonderous sensations.
    Things I've forgotten along the way,
    things I could not forget if I tried,
    all these things and more have helped me to survive.
    Trials and tribulations,
    days I wished would never end, and
    days I never want to relive again.
    Each of these are a part of what makes me ,me.
    God, in his infinite wisdom ,
    gives us the stregnth to survive the worst of times
    and the heart to treasure the best of times,
    and in all these things lies balance, wisdom and love.

    i really like this poem and if we're completely honest with self all who read it can relate it to their own life. my sister once said that though she's done things she's not proud of she is not ashamed of her past because it has shaped and made her who she is today. your poem is beautiful and i thank you for sharing

    Thank you so much. I do agree all we do shapes who we are and no matter what we have done, Jesus can make us new. God bless you.

    true true, I admire the driving positive voicings in this.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.
