I'm Only Human

Updated on November 9, 2010

I'm only human, I can only do so much
I can reach down in the deepest part of me
Feeling around for answers
Hoping to connect with myself
Retrieving the best of me
Not everyone is satisfied with my results
I'm only human, I try to accomplish my goals
Often I'm stopped by the stumbling blocks
In my path
Then I realize those stumbling blocks are me
Here I go again in search of an answer
I know I can go a little deeper
Scrapping the bottom of my soul
I can't go any further, so I've been told
Pick up the pieces of my life
Once shattered, glue them together
I'm only human my life does matter

      This sums-up what a lot of women feel. Always giving, always digging deeper to give a little more and, as you put it so well; realizing our stumbling blocks are simply ourselves.

      We are not deities and yet hold ouselves to such high standards and set such insurmountable hurdles in our own paths. A touching and lyrical confession of this paradox by your work has brought a forlorn tear to my existence.
