I am, Part III - Yearning

I am...
...longing for that first kiss, again
...working hard to get ahead
...trying to keep it real and simple
...not as good a writer as I want to be
...undisciplined
...a hero in my minds eye
...a man out of place, at times
...awkward when I want to be smooth, smooth when I'm alone
...not strong enough to carry the weight of the world, but I'll try
...in quote form (from a song by Rush) "in a groove now, or is it a rut?"
...looking for the truth, everywhere
...not getting caught up in the hype, most of the time
...not going to get ahead by kissing anyone's ass; I work hard - recognize it
...seeking the guidance within, rather looking for it outside myself
...not spiritual, nor religious anymore
...aiming to please my harshest critic, me

I really like this one becuase I can identify with alot of those feelings and ideas. I think that it is also interesting because it shows what kind of person you are, one who isn't afraid to face the sort of unsettling ideas that, in the end, help us to grow.

It's part of my personal inventory, something that forced me to step outside and take a look from a different perspective. We sometimes like what we see and sometimes we don't; either way, it's real.
