Where I Can Be Me


I took this photograph while I was visiting Texas over the summer. I love this photograph so much I use it as my icon on Facebook and other websites for people to know it is me.

While I was in Florida, I was going through depression spell. I wrote the following poem which I think goes well with this photograph.

Where I Can Be Me
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know what I am feeling
But do I dare write it out
In the hopes no one sees it
I feel like eyes are all around me
Watching my every move
I hear the voices say
Do this, do that
I try to bring order 
Within my thoughts
Waiting for the love to escape
And bring me peace
When one turns away
No gentle touch
Just a peck on the cheek
Treating me like a sister
It is really hard to fight
This dark accent
I'm waiting for the clouds to part
And allow the sun 
To come shining through
I welcome the night
The darkness I am trapped in
I can hide where no one can see 
Where I can be me.
