Introducing me to myself

Updated on October 24, 2015

I write to find the pieces of myself that I have lost.

I write to define the pieces of myself, I have not yet found.

Between the lost and the found,

my true self has been forgotten.

Leaving a side a hollow shadow.

I see parts of myself in other people,

reminding myself I have given everything,

without expecting anything in return.

The satisfaction of that should full fill my soul

or at least make up for it

Seeing the best in people has left me blind,

now I beg to see the best of me

I won't be afraid

I'll take back what I left in every step I took,

Building myself back together

I'll lose myself to find me again,

I guess after all that's who I am,

What I've lost and what I've not yet found.

      Ingrid, welcome to HubPages. This is a good poem to introduce yourself with. You show promise as a poet. One line you may like to look at is: "Seen the best in people has left me blind"..I think it should be "Seeing" the best.... Thanks for following me.

      Hi Ingrid, your lines about introducing yourself appears to be far ahead of your age, still young you are not suppose to be at a state of lose and found. Who knows the pain and sufferings inflicted upon you, but in good faith i would strongly recomend a line of yours to you - pls dont lose yourself to find again - adherence of which will put you always on winning streek. All the best. Thanks for sharing
