Poetry On Odyssey: True To Self

"To know what that true self is without social pressure is to know your true nature." - Martha Beck.

Poetry On Odyssey: True To Self
Author's photo

It was a year ago at this time

That I opened up my eyes

And decided to live my life for me

And not what people thought was best for me

I kept feeling not like myself

Every time I would reflect on myself.

It's funny how things change over a year

Those who truly care about you

Stand beside you

I lost some people

I gained some people

But most of all,

I found myself.

I'm no longer by myself.

Because I got a friend in me.

And in those around me.
