The One.


 It isn’t me.
It never was me.

The overwhelming feeling.
The struggle.
The obstacle.

The feeling of weakness.
The tiredness.
The weariness.

The stillness…

And then... 

The knowing.

The surrendering.

It isn’t me.
Not me but in me.

The One.

The love.

 The happiness and joy.

The silence.  

The power.

in Me.

  5. As long as you have love, happiness and joy within you, you will overcome the struggles. Each one of us should have 'The One' within us, don't you think?

  8. I like this poem. It reminds me of who to be when there's a problem. Be optimistic. Be strong and face each struggle with positivism. Be THE ONE! :)

  9. This piece comes with strong emotion. You convey the message and your readers can follow it well. Words are carefully chosen to fit the picture painted. I like the opposites of emotions from lines to lines. Keep up the work. You can be a great poet.

  10. Hmm, I'm bad with poems. But I think you were referring to the conflict of the heart and the mind over something or rather someone.

  11. Her everyday life, written in stanzas :D

    A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

  13. I'm not really sure if I interpreted this right but I'm thinking more on the spiritual aspect that the One is God.

  15. If I were to interpret this poem, I'd feel as if the writer (you) was talking about the kind of strength that comes in loving one's self. You can never love someone else or anything, until you love yourself first.

  20. Hmmm. At first I thought you were in denial by saying that it was not in you. But then I realized that what you mean by not in you was all the negative things you mentioned. On the other hand, what's in you are all the good things inherent to us mankind. Nice. :)
