Be My Example

The day I look at myself
I'll notice the distance
The thoughts of trying to accomplish my goals
are diminished
Maybe if I start again, this time alone
Then I won't be the one wrong
My life has just begun, because now
I know that I've won!
If I believe that I can be
Anything that I see
I'll look around for a career,
So this time next year
I'll be happier than I am now.

    I am very happy to have been able to read your poetry today Lashawn. I do not have a lot of words to comment on it but I want you to know I did read it. Every poem as with every poet has a different meaning and I do not wish to misinterpert your poetry. I do love reading poetry here and I get inspiration from others poetry which enables me to write new poetry myself. There are lots of wonderful people who give great comments here and I hope they all read your poetry and comment. Love, Carol
