It Is Who I Am

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 7:48 pm

A Sunday sermon’s message of
“who was it that inspired you
who took you under their wing
and showed you the ropes”
made me think back
to who influenced me
who inspired my hopes
there was no one person
who showed me the way
who helped me to bridge
from boy to man
to think
to see through
a more mature plan.

It was all bits and pieces
with dad not around
that alone
so different
for that time
in that town
so rare then
so different
to have a parent
while many spouses
maybe fought
separations not as known
my mom was not one
who could fix things alone
were parts or power
tools to me shown.

This experience from
this one that one
from that
in many ways
compared to other
boys I was
flat at knowing
things that they
knew at doing
things they could
do at developing
better insight
a more
savvy point of view.

Since then
I have matured
since then my
mind has grown
my knowledge
my talents
my abilities
fashioned mostly
on my own.

  2. A journey to who we become, rising from those experiences that shape us but does not define us. Two thumbs up!
