AM I

          AM  I ?

AM I  JUST STANDING HERE
OR  AM I JUST DEAD 
AM I SO FULL OF FEAR 
I LOST MY SELF INSTEAD
AM  I  NOBODY
THAT YOU CAN'T DEFEND ME
OR AM I JUST INVISIBLE
THAT YOU REALLY DON'T PRETEND
AM I BLIND
OR I JUST DON'T WISH TO SEE
THE LOVE I CAN NOT FIND 
IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME

AM I HEARING THE TRUTH
OR HAVE  I JUST BEEN DECIEVED
WHO DO I TRUST 
WHO CAN I BELIEVE
AM I SO MAD 
I JUST CAN'T UNDERSTAND
OR AM I SO SAD
I NEED A SHOULDER OR A HAND
IS  IT  JUST ME
OR AM I ALL ALONE

         I.T.

wow, you really said it like it is, Irma & I can't help but be able to relate to this--I think I've asked some of these questions myself...btw I hope you don't mind, I included your name in my parody, The Passionate Souper to the Soup--it was like a lightbulb moment when I was thinking of what rhymes with "that"--thanks for a having such a cool name! :) enjoy your day!

So many questions. This journey throughout life, that we all take to find ourselves is so intriguing, and a journey indeed. Please don't feel alone--there's a world full of people feeling the same. *Smiles* to you Irma.

A lovely and profound introspection into one's own self that too in very simple beautiful words. Great write my friend. It always needs courage to look into our own self. Thanks and many thanks for your beautiful and precious comments on my today's Angel spirit poem Neelkanth. Love and best wishes, ...Ravindra... Irma Hole

One thing I found out is you are as alone as you want to be. There are so many clubs, and churches, and schools with classes and hospitals that need helpers and schools which need teachers aids and pets who have love to give. Shhhoooooooo now go make a new friend! Light and Love (Give love and you will get love)
