Just As I Am

I realize that life is not black and white or good and bad, but rather somewhere in between.

These lines filled my thoughts in quandary wondering what kind of life it could have been.

I smile and sigh as i think about the good old days that passed.

Lived alone and far away, love alone for family clasp tightly in my heart.

I know not how much love i had...given them all away.

Left nothing much for me to spare and see me through my lonely day.

A sudden sadness filled my soul, as i sit alone and look through the wall.

I see emptiness despite of my happiness, i get no meaning from it all.

Life itself is amazing I know...its by thine hands it will trickle and glow.

Shall i tilt a bit and loosen up my soul?

Oh dear, time's ticking and i'd rather rev up my gear.

Life is short so i have to move along.

If anyone does notice and finally appreciate,

I'd be glad to know I exist and taken...

Simple and imperfect,

Just as I AM.

A true friend, and someone who truly loves you, accepts you as you are: flaws and all! I'm very thankful for the true love and acceptance of the Lord, friends and family...and of myself. Great piece!

I do agree with u Bravewarrior. Bill has been a sort of an emotional healer, reading thru some of his hubs made me felt motivated and inspired knowing there are too many like us...u and me who had felt and experienced the downsides of life but is somehow struggling to put back pieces of our broken lives, dreams...happiness. Hope u too have the bestest of days my friend. *huGs*

Billy is the best, Angela! He's got a huge heart, has been through things we can't imagine and still has time for those he cares about. And his friendship is genuine! He's truly an inspiration. I know he is for me! I can't say enough about this man. He's just amazing!!

hey there Bravewarrior :) thanks for passing by my hub and appreciating my simple thoughts and sentiments. I wish not to complain much about things i feel when it comes surreal, but its my emotions that drives my fingers as i type them off my chest. There's just so much inside i wanna say, so many stories untold that i need to unfold. One day at a time, my soul will heal...hope to find happiness that's gonna be for real.

Angela, you are very worthy. Never, ever forget that! Those who are intent on bringing you down or hurting you are not worthy of your precious soul! Keep writing. Get it all out. You'll be amazed at what comes next!
