I AM what I seek!
With all the wisdom that I have acquired, sometimes I don’t make good use of it.
With all the understanding that I have acquired, sometimes I don’t understand.
With all the awareness that I have, sometimes I am completely oblivious.
With all the words of encouragement that I share, sometimes I need uplifting.
In every attempt to evolve,sometimes I digress.
With every word of advice I get, sometimes I need good counsel.
But when I put myself out there some people don’t expect me to be the vulnerable one.
I am supposed to live by the same words that I speak after all, that’s what I preach.
Well, it’s not that simple because I am human you see.
So, I allow myself to feel every emotion and sometimes it swallows me.
When I find myself displaced in confusion, I make every attempt to fight my way out.
Being at peace in the midst of confusion is my plight.
I always leave eyes and heart opened to see the light.
Because I know that the tunnel is not closed and that glimpse of hope will always peak.
Wallowing in self pity or those dangerous emotions others evoke is not the kind of shelter I seek.
My safe haven is in the very words I speak, the encouragement that I give and the awareness I have reached.
It’s me I turn to when I need that escape.
I escape into my thoughts and clarity is always given after I realize who it’s me I seek.
