This is a poem that, after trying to fit into a certain physical ideal most of my life, I find a person who accepts me as I am, and so I learn to accept myself.


Running from myself all of my life;

How can  it be that you would end my strife?

That love would fill me with what was missing;

The time I wasted, wiped away by kissing.

Oh my God, you are so beautiful;

and make me find

             that inner beauty

                              that has always been missing

You bring knew beauty to my life

                               How can it be, my life half o'er

has new meaning!

It begins anew; fresh,

                                     like the new morning dew.

I told myself it could not be true .

                                      You came back;

and now I am new.

Acceptance lifts us and settle us all at once, Monsignor, and here you are finding your truth, your self.

Sometimes, without realizing it, we humans have this enormous learning curve, and the older we get...those life lessons become more clear.

Emotional rescue! Loved ones come into our life for a reason. They also exit for a reason. When that inner beauty can be rekindled to make us whole again, poetry like this is written...beautiful, honest and what you know to be true, Monsignor...Welcome!
