The Person That I Am

The Person That I Am

A Poem by Chris A Jones

Where do the thoughts I have come from?

My thoughts are mine
a summation of life.
My thoughts do aline,
sharp as a knife.

Everything I learn,
shapes my life, my mind.
Wisdom to discern,
shapes truth, and all I do find.

All my anger, and my delight,
all my pain, and my bliss,
and everything I’ve done right,
I should never, ever dismiss.

All that I know,
everything that I am,
certainly will show,
in this lifelong exam.

A bit special, more wisdom is showing in this. In my estimation the person we become depends a lot on who raised us. My ethics come from my mom and dad, and I am glad they took the time to teach us all about right and wrong. Valentine

True! Everything that I learn, was from my parents and beyond.
So Good - that's two simple words that say more than many could say

I really like the completeness of this poem, and the last stanza brings the poem to a great conclusion:)
