Who am I

Who am I

A Poem by Maria

for contest Write for you....

Who am I?
Does it matter,
that I know this.

Who am I?
What do you care?
I cannot say, really.

Full of scars, inside
and out.  Imperfections,
and so much more.

Does it matter, not 
to me.  So why should
you even care to look.

Full of hatred and 
a thirst to kill, revenge,
and perhaps justice.

These scars, run deep,
within, but no one 
can see them, unless I
choose to let you see.

Walk away, let me be,
cause what I am, is 
not what I want to be,
yet in the end, thats just

Who am I,
I am not sure,
but perhaps once
I am dead, I shall
finally know.

I’m always in awe of how much you describe my own feelings about my life experiences with your words. I know there’s a universal response to childhood abuse, but this is more than that. So many times I feel ambivalent about letting people in -- that’s the main thing I get from your message. Sometimes it feels like more trouble than it’s worth -- to get into things, trying to explain how it goes, responding to the shock & disgust which the uninitiated folks spew, whenever they first hear how it was for us. Sometimes it’s better to just keep it to myself. But then I feel an obligation to offer my healing growth to others who are struggling. Your honesty & straightforward messages are a gift (((HUGS))) fondly, Margie

and there are hidden scars which cannot be removed but rather be accepted as part of our life

I write from my heart, soul and mind. Sharing both past and present trials, that I have faced and or am facing. I believe strongly in God and the Bible, yet I respect everyone's views. I myself am no.. more..
