What do you think of yourself

What do you think of yourself….

It’s complicated,

I definitely know my flaws,

Lazy at times,

Emotional at others,

Outspoken in wrong places,

Never like to see the faces of anyone I’ve ever hurt,…

I love myself,

I think I’m funny and cool,

I’m my best friend,

I know myself from within,

I’m in tune with myself,

Not attracted to wealth,

Full of love and dreams,…

I’ve made my mistakes in this life,

Can’t change the past,

I’ve changed lives I think,

Who knows how much control we really have,

I think I’m an imperfect sinner with a good heart,

I think God loves me…..

About csincere

How long have you been writing poetry? -Over 20+years. How did you first discover poetry? - I discovered poetry by accident around 8 or 9 years old. I was taking a science test and there was a question about the moon. My answer was in kind of poetic form and the teacher thought it was great. My answer was " The moon is like a flashlight and the sun turns it on". After that I kept writing poetry and started to read a lot of books. I also listen to a bunch of music, all kinds of music. Mainly R&B music. I put song lyrics in the exact same category as poetry. When did you first get anything published? -I was 12, a family member was in a contest at work. She was 16 years old working at a clothing store in the mall. It was a tshirt contest. They had to write a slogan or a poem. I wrote it she won, I got nothing except a bigger interest in poetry. I still remember some of the poem " Thank you expiration, For all your dedication, Throughout the years, You have dried tears, You've always been there, To protect and care" . that's all I remember. Why do you write? - 1. It helps me with stress. 2. I like being heard. 3. I love poetry I see some of my poetry like abstract art. I know what I'm feeling when I write them but I want the meaning to be open to interpretation. Also poetry as art to me not competition, every poet that loves poetry is great. I just love to write poetry, everything I write isn't about me personally. I just try to think of how I would feel in different situations. So even though every poem isn't about me it's still my feelings.

    Good insight. Life should be balanced in every aspect, including a healthy respect for ourselves without going over the line. Regardless of our sins and “missing the mark,” God does love us still and even came to dwell among us to prove that love.

  2. Great insight …. I personally saw all my faults and always saw other people’s point of view ….. unitl one day it all changed and l saw myself as a mug and used and abused. Then something miraculous happened God called me and l released that l had done things for other people all my life and it was exactly what he wanted …. 30+ years later and just know and all he has taught me am l beginning to see the light of his love in my life. You see l thought he did not have a purpose for me but realise he has a purpose for everything and only when you stop searching ..do you truly find that purpose Amen 🙏

  3. I am certain Gods loves you. An “imperfect sinner with a good heart.” Great line and description.
