There’s a part of me

06 May

There’s a part of me that speaks

Effusive and free

And there’s a part of me

That will not speak

Even to me.

I know them both , we’re friends

I just let them be

No point in squabbling

We’d just lose

Our brand of integrity.

    I don’t know why I love this, but I do! Perhaps because I identify with the subject!

    Wisdom and good sense shines here, letting things be–it is better that way, a silent inner voice and an outgoing spirit-both complementing each other and making you the special being that you are! So lovely and wise!

      Thanks. You always find the right words to make me feel that I’ve indeed written something worth reading:-0

    I know them both – we’re friends

    I love this line. it speaks of something we all experience, especially in our twenties and thirties; not-knowing leaves us frustrated, confused – out of touch with the essence of who we are. Yet one day, when we grow in wisdom, we realise that everything takes time to be revealed, and all revelations happen many times over. It takes many years before we realize that it’s okay not to “know” but just to “be.”

    A native elder in Canada told me once that people drove him crazy when they labelled everything; they walked through the woods and asked him, what is this called? what is the name of that? Thinking if they knew the name, they knew the plant.

    What is the point of identifying, he asked, when people do not take time to learn what medicine and food each plant provides, where it grows and when it should be harvested?

      You’ve added so much more to my lines. Thank you so much. Loved the explanation by the native elder in Canada. Do please keep visiting. You make my page richer in content.:-)
