Yesterday intruded on today.

Specters and angels

Laying bear

Misdeeds and virtues.

Leaving me to witness

The magnitude of each.

Good versus evil,

Bad overriding good.

How can I

A child of the inherent dishonestly

Blinded by self interest--

The need to be right--

To be self protecting--

Self congratulatory--

Knowing that self approval

Is the only path to self acceptance--


And self redemption

Judge the value of my life fairly?


2009 Barbara Ann Duffy

I think most of us have a difficult time finding the value of our own lives.

Life, sometimes as useless as a canceled old cinema ticket.

I like the way you look at yourself in this...honestly and openly. It is often confusing as to what we should or shouldn't recognize in ourselves. If we are proud then we are accused of being vain, if we are quiet we are accused of being self absorbed, if we stand up for ourselves we are accused of being stubborn and argumentive so yea it is hard to see just what we are...but to believe in ourselves we don't need anyone we?

Wonderful poem Bobbi but I found the font difficult to read. I hope I didn't offend.
