It’s Poetry Saturday my friends and we are continuing with a great one. one of my favorite poems is by Emily Dickinson. It’s short and simple but straight to the point and written in plain English. Emily Dickinson saw the world through an interesting lens. She wrote of troubles and love and how she saw the world. I write about the same things.
Emily Dickinson also knew the importance of being of oneself. I have struggled with knowing myself and being myself. It’s much easier to change oneself to fit in, however, the aftertaste is a bitter one.
Then I realized that God made me this way and I was perfect the way that God wanted me to be. So now I stay true to myself and I am much happier. Here is the poem. I found it on http://www.poemhunter.com
I’m a nobody, Who Are you?
I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish — you know!
How dreary to be somebody!
How public like a frog
To tell one’s name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
Remember to be yourself because this how your heavenly father created you to be.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand—
when I awake, I am still with you.
TTFN and God Bless and Keep you 😊
