I’ve been away
Deeply within myself looking
Hoping for redemption
Up close and personal
Attained from afar
Staying out of the grasp
Of dismal thinking
Skirting the edges of insanity
I’ve been away
In that land called introspection
Looking for peace
In a world filled with war
Looking for insight
While hiding my eyes
I’ve been away
Hiding from life, chaotic
While looking for peace
In myself
Deep within myself

not pathetic, soul searching is fruitful self-examination
but then you drop it, and just BE - BE HAPPY!

Rest is an antidote to breakdown. Please find time and rest your brain. You have been very active lately. Good poem, Sue.

Aw, give yourdelf a break. I've been there, it really isn't worth all the hell you putting yourself through. Smile. Everyone will wonder what the hell you up to.

Pathetic? I think not. Where else can peace be found if not in one's self? And during that search, if art is found as well, good for us.
Reviewed by Handsum Hart 6/30/2005
Soul searcher, I like the way you wrote this.
Best wishes

Ah, I do not think it is pathetic, rather it takes a very courageous person to take a long deep look at where they are, and where they are going, Love how you expressed your journey in this excellent poem.

Soul searching is a pretty hard exercise but worth every tear and sweat! Those demons you didn't know existed in your closet ... brrr ... The last time I did decided to spring-clean my closet, I wrote "The Caged Tiger" poem. But you will know yourself better, and you will feel so much peace and 20kg lighter once done.

God bless, Sue!

there's nothing pathetic about soul searching, only giving up. the things you've seen and done, and what i know of them, tell me you've sailed enough oceans to know how to catch your wind.
Reviewed by E T Waldron 6/29/2005
Sue this is wonderful, you have a clear perspective.
Don't be so hard on yourself, you're doing fine!
Glad you're back!;-)

Sue,

I agree with Robert, it is essential that we take
"time out" to regain focus!
Reviewed by jude forese 6/29/2005
sometimes we need to move within ourselves to regain perspective ...
nothing pathetic, about that ...
Reviewed by Brian Pellerino 6/29/2005
Sue,

Know that the peace you seek is seeking you with the same alacrity. Be mindful that you don't pass one another up sniffing the trail...

Great piece!

We all must face our demons from time to time, clean out our mental closets and start anew, and to do that we have to forgive ourselves first of all our past mistakes. Then we can move on.
