'Rediscover Me'


- "If you can walk away today, would you?"
Somehow that question stuck in her mind as she was packing things in her suitcase Can it really be this easy? I hope not she thought - How can one just pack up and go? How do you forget the things that you cherished for half your life things that made the most sense even those you identified as your own? How did you become the stranger in the family portrait? So unrecognizable lifeless hair, a face that reflect weariness With an absent smile I never realized I've lost myself somehow, somewhere I got stuck while everyone around me continued to grow stagnant I became - because I worried about everybody else and forgot to love me maybe it's time I rediscover me - 'cause how can one give love when you don't love yourself? So this is not goodbye, no I'm not leaving you... Just taking some time out to rediscover me ---

    interesting and that is a popular mode of thought.... doesn't usually work but it is popular. Seems you are taking on a new poetic style and ambiance with your work Wilma. Thoughtful and a stab at philisophical... Getting better all the time. What do you mean "cold" in capetown? Can't be , can it? It sure isn't "cold" in Florida! love ya, Capetown girl._Bob

    I hope your words will help an unaware reader because they have the potential to do so. I've many people in this situation. They leave their familly and spend wasted years trying to fill a void. A void that can only be filled by the Saviors love thus love for themselves.Thanks for your wonderful insights.

    Wow, Wilma...what a pleasure it was to read this (though it broke my heart too) It's quite apparent that the speaker already HAS rediscovered herself in many, many wonderful ways...Best regards to you my friend - Tim

    An insightful write so many can relate to, Wilma. These are the "givers" in life..never taking time out for themselves..I see our Mothers in this picture and the incredible sacrifice they rendered for many. Wonderful work as usual! Love, Annalise

    Oh, I don't think you are any where near stagnant, Wilma! You've a fresh pixie like face and a smile that we need for you to share here!:) I saw you on that amarula cream camel in your blog...looks nothing like the one posted on mine..LOL I don't think I'd chance a ride on that 'charles', no matter how much he seems to smile. Keep well...best wishes, Mikki

    The confusion of living often brings us face to face with our inadequacies and time out can hopefully help us get back on track. A thoughtful verse Wilma; has its own share of pain to read. Luv, Lizzie
