Who Am I ?

Who Am I ?

A Poem by Vidya Bacchus
"

Ramblings of a purple angel.

"
                                                             Who am I ?


I am  not a poet or a wordsmith,
Who can capture with my words,
I can only beg these pages,
To be patient with my ramblings,

I am not a singer that can coax a tear,
By the sweetness of my voice,
And be remembered long after,
My curtain has fallen.

I am but a person cast adrift in my life,
Wondering and worrying,
That I am going about it all wrong,
And everyone knows,

As they judge me in silence,
Shaking their heads at every decision,
But offering no advice,
Lest I realize they are looking.

I used to need your approval,
It meant so much to me,
Until I realized it was never mine to have,
And then my approval became all that mattered to me.

Hello Simmy my sweet .Thank you very much :)
YES, this is a very smart philosophy. YOUR opinion counts with you and it should count more than anyone else's. You have to be happy with who you are and what you do. Others can think what they will, but you need your inner peace. I have to disagree, Vidya....you ARE a wordsmith. You get your point across and do so very well. I enjoyed this write. Lydi**

My sweet friend, I know you are one of the most lovely persons in life I ever met. :) (Vidya Vista) just did born out of our humorous moments, and I shall never forget lol, (that's your soul, your heart), and here the words are that greatly spelled... And this is an introspective piece, but I needed to tell you, how I feel about you :)) for you are appreciated, as a poetess, friend, and sister.

What a wonderful poem of self-realization, I beg to differ though, you are indeed a poet, you've just proven it....and you left out the pazzo part hon. ;) Great one Vidya!

Hello Blake nice to meet you and thank you very much :)
I agree. Self acceptance is a must on the path of self realization. Approval of the self exceeds the approval of others. Another excellent poem Vidya...:).....................

Excellent advice wrapped in your creative verse… we cannot please everyone so we must please ourselves and those who care will approve no matter what.
