Finding Myself - Poetry

I started my journey being a seeker,

seeking confidence, seeking success,

but something stopped me,

Is that my comfort or the fear of unknown or is it a sense of uncertainty,

I am not sure, what is it?

When I ask myself "where to"? I have no clue,

but I know this path takes me to my soul.

Do you believe in loosing yourself, before finding yourself,

there is nothing more honest than loving yourself.

I realize I have lost something of mine,

which is magnificent in its design.

I think I have left my heart somewhere 

or the part of me that believes in "Who I am".

I must listen to the call of my heart, 

The call that won't let me be content,

The call that help me find the piece of me that connects me with my destiny.

The piece of the puzzle that fits perfectly into a place of sanity,

The piece that help me break the chain of self doubt and make me come alive,

Its time to share the real me to the world I thrive.

I do not want to fit in like the world expects from me,

but I want to stand out like I was born to be.

I am not ready to give myself away,

I am done denying myself, I will not let myself fade away,

This part of my life is all about me, believing in everything I do.

I have come to peace with my spirit.

I love who I am, and what I do.

My journey of self discovery and self love has just begun...........

So hold me tight my thoughts, as this is the new beginning of adventurous life span.
