Whatever..I'm Still Here..better and stronger

Eventually being me.....

This is what I write about......
This is what I write about...... | Source

No longer hiding from myself....


We met at a time when we were young…

And I believed in your words of love….

You wined me and dined me with your words..

I actually believed what you said…

I changed so much in those early years…

That I didn’t even know myself…

My friends and family became strangers as I put them on a shelf..

Only seeing them when you allowed me and gave permission to myself…

I had dreams and aspirations of my own, to write and publish a book..

However you said..” what have you got to say ?” so another thing you took...

So I put my dreams on hold, cause you told me mine were boring….

As you stated, yours were great, but all talk, none the less...

You never even tried or sought to take a chance to progress....

Your life became stagnant…and you blamed everyone else..

I gave you permission to run my life, so there’s no one to blame but myself…

You were like a person playing chess with themselves, never letting the other advance.

My life became so devoted to thee…

That I became no longer me…

The years slipped by, you became bored with me.

So you moved on to destroy another I see…..

But now I am happy as can be, and no longer bound by your words you see…

You left me with so much to say…

that now I can write and publish... every single day….

Funny and at times filled with infamy. We were young and we played the game of love. Kids came along... but at least you became a wonderful mom... So that what's my take from this insightful poem.

Yes - can definitely relate to this - you nailed it. "i gave you permission to run my life - is the telling line - although the realisation is usually in hindsight. How easy it is to lose track of who we really are.

I was talking with friends the other day - about this very subject - and the general topic of 'wanting, needing to be ourselves' . In this case it was generational...women of a certain age. Thank you for this.

travmaj..funny, but I thought it was " generational" also..until I spoke with my G-D

( age 21) . It appears now these days are worse than before..C0-dependency is more prevalent than ever...with all the work that we have done in the past, with women's Lib and all, how is this happening ? possibly a new hub..? thanks you for you input and comments...very much appreciated...
