SELF-PUZZLE


My poems are tiny pieces of me
Tiny jigsaw puzzle pieces of me
A puzzle that never was complete
I puzzle meant for me to finish

My poems are a puzzle
To help me find my self
The puzzle a mirror
To see my fractured self

My poems are telling pieces of me
My life a jigsaw puzzle to complete
Only I can do it right
To choose and identify
The last remaining pieces
To form a true picture
The final true picture of me
Whole, Beautiful, Free

    Hope it all falls into place as you so much deserve; still I'm enjoying trying to assemble some of the pieces just to get an idea of what beauty's lurking in these..
