MY INNER SELF

I have come from a distance not looking behind or in front of me. I have felt the heat of a hot summer day and the frigid temperatures of a cold winter day. I know what it is like to be knocked off my feet, I have been hit in the face and have felt the pain of defeat. I walk a path that has no end. I have entered places with no welcome. I have cried in secret. I have looked into my most inner self, I have found happiness within myself and with the help of no one else.

A very well expressed piece, although I wonder if it would be truly possible “with the help of no one else.”
