Dear Journal,

There are times that I felt I had lost myself
At times, I can’t help feeling like I’m someone else
I knew it was time to embrace who I really was…

I began to search for a place,
Where I could find myself
I ventured to discover a place,
Where I could be away from everyone else

After all the struggles and pain,
I knew it was myself who I had to gain

I finally found the key
That would unlock all this uncertainty
And now, open is what was once concealed
And it was the true me, the depths had revealed……….

Flipping through the pages…
…Now I know who I am, so I tell you this…

I may not be perfect,
But I am the best person I could be
I may not have everything I want,
But I have everything I need

I may not know everything,
But what I do know is enough
I may always be smiling,
But my life is truly rough

Residing in the writings…
…I always knew who I was, so you should know that…

I may not be perfect,
But who I am, I will never forget
I may not have everything I want,
But I work hard to get what I get

I may not know everything,
But I know who my friends are
I may always be smiling,
But only because the people who love me are with me;
Near or Far

*Reflects on things*…

Journal, you know that…
I had to keep who I am to myself,
Because so many people try to make you
Someone else

And that…
There are always people who don’t like you
But I have more that do
So it doesn’t Matter

You’re the only one…
Who has never judged me,
Who was always willing to listen
Who never questioned my thoughts;
Who knows me as well as I know myself

And I realized…
It doesn’t matter what people say or do,
Because I will always have you
You know who I am, and you accept me as that
When I talk to you, you always know how to react

I found out that…

I am who I am
What you see is what you get
No masks shielding me
There is nothing else I could be

So I want you to know…

What I write within you, is what I truly feel
And everything I write, will always be real
So I found myself, in the depth of you writings
With every turn of a page, new light was revealed

Since the beginning until the end
You have been my loyal friend
And I know that whenever I need help finding myself,
I can look through my journal

I can count on you because
I finally saw the truth,
…My spirit lies in you

Plz. Rate and Comment! Thank you
