Facets of me.......

From the one that lives inside my head and only speaks to me from time to time.....who emerges from of all that white noise.


 


The child that is still there to play
hide and seek with old memories.
The arrogance of the teenage girl
who thought she was invincible
but who could self destruct on a whim.
The young woman seeking to know herself
and know herself well, traveled back to the past
to find the pathway that led to the 
straight and narrow
but always stayed cautious, never
to be narrow minded.
This new Woman who is emerging,
bringing all of 'the others' forward
being careful not to forget
lessons learned along the  way.
Fast Forward
with thoughts of the old woman, 
who lays in my future,
How much time is left to know her?
To become her?
In the end...what mark
will she leave on this
 world?
