Poem Commentary

One of my nicknames is "LI" and I use it as a signature for my poetry.

Suffering with depression I have doubts about myself and who I am.  I created this poem as inspiration.  It's okay to look at myself in the mirror and not be discourage because my creator is why I exist and if I exist then I must FIND PURPOSE.

It's okay if you don't love me but it is not okay to not love yourself.
Take out the LI and read it again.

IT JUST ME


Look at me, Li

 

Basing in my uniqueness

 

Strutting a smile of gratification and delight

 

because I am splendor

 

Created in God’s image of distinctness

 

I breathe in life's reality

 

Convinced that what is, is meant to be

 

what was is past

 

I control nothing but my own being

 

and it's my reaction that can bring devastation to my tomorrows

 

 

Love Li

 

I am the explanation of my existence

 

I bare no shame

 

For it’s me in the reflection

 

I cannot hide

 

My deceit will be revealed

 

So I confess and move on

 

head held high

 

sure of my direction

 

I live serenely

 

 

My past is my testimony for the future

 

My wisdom is the guidelines

 

towards correcting my imperfections

 

I have purpose

 

 

Love Li as you see me

 

My beauty

My skin

My eyes

 

I am content

 

I am original

 

So look at me and look at yourself

 

Although change can be unattainable

 

Change in me is profitable

 

LOVE YOU because I LOVE LI

This is beautiful, I wish I could say I am content with my image. I have goals and they keep me going it seems. But really all of it is vanity.

Nothing that you have in life that makes you content will be in vain. You have to be content with yourself or you will reveal to everyone your discontentment. God has made us in all our individuality and there is no perfect model. I am work in progress. Thank you for your comment and Happy Holiday.

excellent verse. the good thing about a mirror is that it is only a reflection of you; inasmuch, you can always walk away, and change your reflection as you seek to change your mind, heart, and life. i felt assurance, confidence, and self esteem in your words; but i also heard another person deep from within... trying to escape. i love your work; very potent, somewhat arrogant, yet soothing, refreshing and mostly... your work delivers a subtle message to its readers. continue your journey..... thejazzpoet

ARROGANT? Please explain. Is this for this one poem or in general.

Yes, there were two sides of me battling, the side that believed what people said and absorbed it and the one that heard what the people said and ignored it. It has taken me too much time to choose a side but now the people listen to me. I had to learn who I am before I could be who I am. I know I have no control over anything except me and so I stay in control. My journey started so long ago, if only I knew I was traveling.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
