Just Be What I Am

My life has been hard at times struggling to speak since pre-school stressful situations got you down working life also felt excessively cruel Took on therapy at various times but stammer never improved very much progress was short-lived never to stay but always felt I needed a special touch Even went to spiritual healing meetings but they proved a waste of time hypnosis helped in my mid-twenties but took it only so far failing to rhyme In conclusion, I learned one key thing God made me to be what I've become accept myself speaking as I do learn to do that, beat my own drum My healing is in letting me go believing to just be what I am remind myself to be kind to me content yourself this I truly know What does healing and letting go look like and feel like for you? (I've written this as a poetic expression of solutions on healing and letting go of a struggle or struggles many of us may have.)

Wow! Gordon, This is a healing poem indeed. I agree, when one loves accepts who they are, it is a healing of the soul. I'm sorry to hear that you went through all that, and I can relate because I suffered difficulties as a child. Healing for me was accepting my flaws and all. The abuse that I suffered made it difficult to love myself. Thanks for sharing your story. Have a nice day and weekend:-) Alexis
