You Are... ?

You wonder...

What is it that I cannot give?
 

The mind wanders...

What is it that they do not see?

You sigh...


Why is it that what's not in your control...

That is what they all want you to be?

You cry?


No, hush your heart for it's not your fault...

You are...


What your soul makes you!

Not an iota more not a jot less...

They are...


Not for you, sadden not your heart over them...

You remain...


What your God maketh you so,

On their expectations of you do not slighten your hem!

Who you are...


Will get what you're meant to; hang in there some more...

Just be a little more, just another day long...

Patient?

Thank you magiceye... Nice to know it didnt just resonate my personal woes, rather remained able to allow another to read into it a meaning, as well...

What a wistful, sensitive poem! I am not usually too fond of poems, but yours is simple and touches a chord deep within....

I am humbled that my words touched you in such a way!

55er is a creative piece of prose or poetry that encapsulates in 55 words all that you wanted to say!

I kind of figured that bit out... what Im wondering now is... do you put it up somewhere like on blogadda as many post for contests of all sorts there, or is it just a indiblogger thing? :D

Are there more 55-er's all in one place, that could be visited and read?

Thanx for volunteering to be my 55er 101 tutor ;)
