" The Puzzle I'm Finally Proud To Call Myself"

Updated on March 5, 2014

ME

There is beauty and hope amongst all the chaos and insidious torture.

There is love buried at times under years of self-hate, bullying, and self-destruction.

I am strong under some of my

overtly perceived weaknesses.

Life long pessimist, yet the optimist is really within,

Lessons and growth amongst all the let downs and failures.

Dark fog rising - I can finally see...

I am blessed to be me...

crazy

moody

yet so strong, hard-working, smart, beautiful, and compassionate.

I am ready to be the leader I was raised to be.

The world has been waiting for me.

The missing puzzle piece complete?

could it be?

      Beautiful poem; especially for those of us who have taken years to find out who we are and to love that person. Thank you for sharing!

      Your verses are beautiful and insightful, Stacey. Awareness is the first step to overcoming problems, and it seems you've taken many more steps than the first one.

      Hi poetess

      It s really excellent poem mainly when the theme rises from a personal experience ; it s a true life experience and never a ballant statement .I do love your way of transmiting true things to others artistically .Your works deserves to be used as guiding basis for people who need discovering their own strength .Every word you put you clarify it with its opposite such as " There is beauty and hope amongst all the chaos and insidious torture." beauty and hope =/ chaos torture , your style is fast moving and it makes your reader feel your thought easily and fast.

      the conflict you arose between protagonist and antagonist as in a novel plot writing also makes one follow the events and their development till the climax then you know when and where you declare the denoument which gives hope to your reader

      well done ,just keep writing
