on being human

Over and over, I have tried and failed
after which I took a step back
Smacked myself around with enlightenment
Gained some wisdom
And was lonely in it

People say I am hard on myself
and I am
Because I think somehow I should be above it
Should be better at being in it
Should know myself more by now

Every once in awhile I have a moment
where I let myself be human
And it's not quite as lonely
even though I'm in the dark

The level of maturity and insight that you display in your posts is remarkable, even more so knowing how relatively young you are.

Great job.

You've inspired me to write a haiku. Maybe a dirty limerick.

Well done.

thumbs up!
isn't it strange that we can see ourselves in others? wherein someone we scarcely know can say something you feel you feel alone? and connect you. to them. and to your self.
ta!
