The Real Me

Everyone says I'm different,
Says that I have changed.
I think differently.
I'm just finding me.

Everyone says "Your life's wasted"
Says I'm going nowhere.
I think differently.
I'm just finding me.

Everyone slowly leaves.
They say I'm all alone.
I think differently.
I'm just finding me.

Everyone shows me things from the past,
Tries to show what they think they know.
I think differently.
I'm just finding me.

Sitting alone with nothing and noone,
I look at things left behind.
I'm still thinking differently.
I was just finding me.

I look over it all again and again,
Looking for something to show.
Now, I think differently.
I lost the real me.

    If you want to truly find the real you then look within and not without. Christ said it is what comes from the mouth that defiles ones self, for what comes from the mouth comes from the heart. Listen to the things you say and talk about. then be willing to hear and see what you don't want to about yourself and then be willing with the help of Christ to change. This is a very good poem and I really appreciate you sharing it. sincerly Bobb
