I Only know the Me I Have Become to Be (Daily Word Prompt is Collaboration)

 The collaboration of events

I experienced throughout my life,

both good and bad,

have created me to become the person I am today.

I only know the me I have become to be.

If only one thing changed in my life,

just one seemingly small thing

in my life were different,

it would have changed my life

and my destination,

causing me to travel

down a different path,

leading me in a different direction

on a different road than I have traveled

on the journey of my life.

The journey of my life

that has brought me to the place I am today.

Who would I have become?

I only know the me I have become to be.

I have had many difficult struggles,

bumps and deep holes I had to dig myself out of,

on the many roads I have traveled on my personal journey of life,

but my paths have also led me in the direction of much

beauty, joy, peace, happiness and love.

My children would not be the people they are today,

if I had taken just one different turn

on my journey of life.

I would never change my children in any way.

I love them just the way they are.

My destination was predetermined

making me become the person I am today.

I would not change that at all

because than what would my life be like?

It could have become better,

or it could have become worse.

I will never know,

and I do not want to know,

because I only know the me I have become to be.

The person I am today is the only person I know how to be.

I will continue to improve the person I am today

to become a better person for tomorrow.

I will continue creating a better today,

so my tomorrows will become better than today,

and my life today will have a better future

for me and my children,

and many others

I pray I can touch and help

in a positive way

on my continued journey of life.

    1. Thank you for your kind comments and encouraging words. I think self-acceptance is a continual process in our lives and is something we all need to work on. Sometimes I accept it all and appreciate all of it and other times I need to remind myself that this is the way I need to be. I write with words to encourage others and for myself as well. Stay healthy, well and happy. Sue


  1. This is beautiful. Self-acceptance is the most important acceptance of all (or that’s what they tell me. I’m still working on it myself)! Thank you for this poem and the encouragement it sparked within me.
