Me, myself and I

I'm not that keen on me
Never ever really have been
It's ingrained, deep inside
Something about me I've tried to hide

But sometimes I need to share
What I am and how I care
About what it's like feeling this
And how it brings me to my knees

God has done much caring
Showing me that I'm worth loving
Slowly it's seeping through
But it's hard to remember when I'm blue

I never expect to be
Completely happy being me
But I hope that with God's love
I'll learn that I'm good enough


This poem was written for the Wednesday challenge at real toads: For today's challenge, I ask you to draw on a personal relationship as the basis of your poem. This could be your relationship with a family member, lover or your relationship with yourself or fellow countrymen. You may use past experience, memory or reminiscence to express your ideas.

Depression in all its guises is difficult. I do hope you find and believe you are well worth loving!

I think you've got a lot of company, in feeling this way. It isn't an easy road to go.

Teresa said...

What a wonderful open and honest poem. I know exactly how those doubts can nag and nag.

Margaret said...

Hmm. Self acceptance is often a friend we keep at arms length. If only we saw what others see...

and you are good enough. More than enough.

Karen said...

We are our own harshest critics, I think, and yet we are "wondrously made" and much loved.

You wrote from a very vulnerable place and your words have the ring of truth. Thank you for sharing on Real Toads.

I know that journey, through self-doubt to self-acceptance. Keep walking, pilgrim - you will reach it.

How honest this is..I have walked this same path and at times still take its detour.

Cad said...

Clever approach, to look at one's relationship with self! Well done.

Ella said...

I have felt this way...still do at times. I think most of us at some point in time, get off our path.
