No Matter What I Am

No matter my strength

I want gentle known.

No matter my tenderness

I want strength within.

I want patience

Without losing my impulsivity.

I want kindness as a rule

But anger sometimes serves a purpose.

No matter what I am in a moment

It does not exist in my every moment.

    Another great poem, sometimes your poetry makes me want to cry, and other times I laugh so hard I nearly fall off my chair. veronica@wRiteInK

    Beautiful drawing and message, Colleen.
    I like trying to have both inner strength and gentle nature. When my fierce side comes to defend or to remind family or friends, of right or wrong, often comes too upset or unexpectedly. The human nature of the reaction sometimes needs “tamping down.” hugs xo
