Come walk with me and know who I really am.

Walking with introspect in mind.
I challenge my life one step at a time.
Each day grows new lessons learned
No time for the old man, just the new I yearn.

What makes me who I am only few really know.
Hidden in those tiny dark places is a waiting light 
   to grow.
Getting inside is the secret to the quest.
Many have tried success by the best.

They never stole my spirit or my soul.
Each one in their own way has made me whole.
As I look back and then forward again.
Nothing much has changed outside or in.

We are what we make ourselves and we learn to be
People only see us on the outside and pass their
Who we are on the outside speaks volumes of what is on
    the inside.
Do we live two different lives? Does one rise up and the
    other subside?

I can only judge myself and my own thoughts and deeds.
I can only be who I am and what others may need.
Such is my lot in life. One I quickly embrace.
For knowing me as me, I find no shame, no disgrace.

For growing old in wisdom and happiness is my goal.
Mending fences once again and making things whole.
Giving time and space for me to be me brings peace and
Walk with me if you will and joy will be plenty.

I walk with myself to see things in different lights.
Hurts still hurt and wrongs are never rights.
But hurts no more and wrongs made right.
Walk with me and share my light.

"We are what we make ourselves"...I love this line, because it speaks only the truth.

such an introspective and wise write-i love this-as we all must walk with our own selves-it is wise to walk in dignity and pride
Reviewed by Kathy Armijo 9/12/2007
A guide for living. Sounds like we were cut from the same cloth, but you have stated it most succiently.
