Understanding Me (Poem)

There’s sadness within me,

Why do I feel sad?

What’s going on with me?

I don’t know why I’m sad,

I need to understand me.

 

I feel anger within me,

Why am I angry?

What’s going on with me?

I don’t know why I’m angry,

I need to understand me.

 

I don’t always know why I feel the way I do,

Yet I take time to try to understand my feelings,

I work to figure out why I feel the way I do,

I spend time alone with my feelings,

Understanding my feelings is what I feel I must do.

 

You see there’s nothing wrong with trying to understand yourself,

Answers can come when we try to understand ourselves,

Understanding yourself is also part of loving yourself,

Sadly, we focus more on understanding others yet don’t focus on understanding ourselves,

The question is, “Who would understand you if you don’t try to understand yourself?”
