Missing Myself

It's that girl,
the one in the beloved family stories,
stories of impossible strength and unexpected glory, a girl with full knowledge of her radiant power,
a girl living impulsively,
in direct accordance with need and want,
a girl listening to another voice,
not the voice always shouting "yes" and "no" or "should" and "shouldn't,"
it's that girl with all her terrible beauty,
still buried beneath wrinkles and memories,
still living obscurely in the depths of my soul,
that I miss the most
when I turn out the lights at night.

ooohhhh...i love this entry. So sweet! So many times we get wrapped up in others that we forget our "true" selves. That picture goes perfectly too!

I like this post too. I feel the same way sometimes, like I've lost myselft, or i'm not being true to the core of who I am. It's hard to strip down and bet to the truth of who we are. That's what is so cool about kids, they are basic and pure right now, without walls.

you know, I sometimes search for that girl in myself. often I find that she is more of a man than I will ever be. so I set her in the corner of my mind and ignore her in hopes that she will just go away.
