Absolutely beautifully said, and so many times they do not finish the lessons needed....I loved the cover up with the gray line, that was so telling....Great read, thank you....

|A well written poem and enjoyable read. This is something everyone does....Hiding from the lessons of life|

A lot of insight here Helen. There are some who do just as you say...
Self hatred can devalue the soul in a very profound way.

I love the way you have painted your words here!
You have a gift of expression.

Wow, Helen...I can't help but feel the pain in this write, and it makes me want to cry thinking of what must have inspired these words. I pray that everything is starting to work out now...
Very well written, and wonderfully expressed...and the subject matter...intense and sad.
I send hugs to you!

|I thought this was great.. i loved ..|
the title of the poem
you painted ... to cover up your grey -- excellent imagery.
you hide yourself .. killing yourself within - a great line
i may re-think the line you take that, what is not yours.. i might change it to you take, that which is not yours or you take what is not yours?
just a thought
I do hope you manage to find a way to right the balance.. thinking of you in this time
peace, light, love

Wow--you read my heart my friend--I should have written this. "Denial is your best defence"...wise words indeed. Touching piece Helen--I feel this to my core.
