How to change who you are

How to change who you are

How to change the very core of your soul

How to change the sky when itís so high above you

How to take back the trust you stole

Kindness, warmth and a million catches

Doesnít seem to be quite what is wanted

Donít know quite who to be today

Donít quite know which is the right way

Turning in circles, confusion is nothing new

Trying to find a way to change me

But barriers are all I see

And I close my eyes because sometimes

It hurts to think too much

And I long for an understanding touch.

How to fit into a jigsaw when thereís just no place for your piece

How to find your place when you are lost

How to touch a star

How to change who you are.

You selected an excellent topic simple yet also complex.  Do you always need to 'fit' in to the puzzle?  The risk might be if you do fit are you still 'you'? I believe your core values should be firm and you make an effort to fit in without going against what you believe to be correct.  Personal growth should come from  learned experiences not on a wave of emotion. Going trough life in very random even for the best planner the constant should be 'keeping it real' with yourself.  An excellent write that should make everyone who reads it think.
