Who am I allowed to be? – #Poem #Who am I?

I have needs

I feel my chest tighten

My stomach lurches

Words fail to find purchase

Flitting through my mind

Running on the River

Jumping to conclusions

Judging worth and comparisons

Weight on the balance

To the left, or to the right

Am I allowed the opinion?

To live a life

Satisfying my desires

Allowing myself a priority

On where it will lead me

Confusing stays with me

Clarity eluding me

Because this is the first time I asked

Who am I allowed to be

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
