Not angry
or agitated-
driven by passion
*
Not ill
or shock worn-
a seasoned survivor
*
Not burnt out
or exhausted-
tempered by time
*
Not controlling
or stubborn-
sanquine and assured
*
Not judgemental
or vigilant-
self-aware

Today I saw myself through your eyes

    We criticize ourselves so much, that it’s refreshing to see us from another perspective 🙂 Beautifully put. The “tempered by time” line stands out!

    I am an ill-seasoned survivor. But I do love your poetry, and you, and I think you’re wonderful. I’m glad you saw yourself through whoever’s sensible eyes were looking when you wrote this.
