Self-observations >>>> I live my life through my poetry I am the team of my insecurities Living on the edge Or Waiting to be held I was taught the vital level of survival skills Somehow, I fail in so many ways My foundation tilt >>>>>> It has become easier to depend on others For comforts, without lifting a muscles Or turning on my thinking cap I turn off all gaps Maybe it could be signs of weakness; Or a touch of madness Perhaps a little of both I never worry about my beauty Because it’s unquestionable I am so lovable, But non-negotiable To live by words, or to create my own language Which I seldom do To be the one who must decipher U cannot stands alone or be written as just u (You) >>>>> Self-observation is self-multiplying And self- reflection Beginning with my low and high Timing is everything However, do I have the time?

    Insightful and thoughtful composition. Your honesty is appealing and beautiful. You express yourself so well-- it is only to be assured that you "live life through" your "poetry"... Another gripping verse. Wow, I really enjoyed reading from you today! Will be reading from you again very soon! Always, Laura
