Hidden Behind The Light

Updated on August 9, 2017

When We Are Not Trying To

You ever look up in the sky at the sun

The sun is so bright you can't bear to look up for another second

You have to look away

As much as you want to try it again

Your eyes beg you not too

Is it possible we all have a bright light

That people see us not for who we are

Only for what they want to see

Then in time when the light starts to soften a bit

Not so much to hurt our eyes

The instant headache that we got from before

Will always be remembered

Not to scare us away

To remind us how powerful each of us are

How is it we can live a lifetime and not know ourselves ?

If we don't know ourselves how can we expect to know someone else ?

Through life's struggles we learn more about who we are

What hurts us so much

Can also make us love more

To appreciate life in a new way

We never would of tried before

Then when the struggle is over

Why do we try to go back to the way it was ?

It doesn't take long before we know it can be done

Even though we will try again and again

Are we afraid of what we have seen ?

Maybe afraid of what we can see ?

Nobody I know tells you go ahead and struggle

It is a good thing

All I heard my whole life

It is common

We all struggle at sometime in our life

Don't people realize that does not help

I have heard other people also say

I can't help you

You have to do it alone

Then I have had friends and family who have tried to help

Only to find out

They could not see what I see

Then when I am still confused or perplexed

They don't say see if that helps

If not I will help you as much as you like

They instead say

Why did you ask if you didn't want my help

I don't have an answer to my struggles in life

I do know I have no reason not to share

If I don't have the answer maybe you do

If you don't have the answer someone might

Together we can try

Then shine a little light on life

      Ms Dora Every time I think I know me, I uncover a new thought, then off to a whole new reality. So nice to see you and I hope your day is awesome.

      All your questions are thought provoking but this one grabs my attention: "How is it we can live a lifetime and not know ourselves?" Philosophical and involving. Good read!
