 Reflections of My Heart

Who I Am   ღ KKD ღ

Who I Am...

I find it so odd
that many like me for me
Yes the me
you refuse to see.

For years on egg shells
I have walked
Each word is guarded
when I've talked

I always had to worry
About what I wear
For fear of getting
the disapproving stare

I don't understand the need
in the judging of what I say
Even after the battering
I still stand strong today

Its seems very little
I ever did right
No longer do your words
haunt me at night

Your life is yours
and my life is mine
That to me has been made clear
Unity? Well I fear not enough time

After so many years of not
I now really now like who I am
My shoes you've never walked
and I pray you never can

There are those from my heart
you will never steal
For the love they gave
is all that was real

It's not by my choice
but our paths divide
I reject your disapproval
as you reject my life's stride

There is one small thing
that has sadly been overlooked
I am Who I am
As it is written in God's book.

Take Me As I Am

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
