is what you get
my essence however
is one
of many colors
the shadows within me
are there
to give me pause for reflection
there are also
colliding emotions
making dark clouds and lightning
which stalks through
my mind
if you were able to see the storms
you'd likely
believe I was quite insane
psst!
those who know me quite well
might confirm
that assessment with a nod and a wink
still . . . my quintessence
is like that babbling brook
alive with life's being
on the whole
I consider myself to be
a phenomenon
all of my inner expressions
form me
however you may see me
as I stand before you

This is quite an affirmation of self. You do a good job of being fair and balanced and very human. You claim your warts and well being. Fine writing. ~L

I thank you, Lori, and I have plenty of warts to claim.

this was in fact a description of all of us, as we all have a positive and negative side, or sides?

I love the way you articulated this....
