The Part Outgrown

22 Jan

She didn’t mean to be
a tangled web of contradictions. In fact, she fought

with every ounce of her being against her own complexity.

It wasn’t all she was.

It wasn’t even the biggest part of her,
but it was still a part.

And in a world where people want to mold you;
that part of her

was quickly outgrown.

    That, is something we ALL have to deal with on our ways to growing up, because there are so many outside NOISES that keeps on telling you what you should be, and how you should act, and, IF you take everybody else’s opinions into you, then, “you” would be gone, seems like the character’s undergoing some changes…

    Taylor,thy beauty is to me.Like those Nice’an barks of yore,That gently,o’er a perfumed sea,The weary,way-worn wanderer bore.To his own native shore.On desperate seas long wont to roam,Thy hyacinth hair,thy classic face,Thy Naiad airs have brought me home.To the glory that was Greece.And the grandeur that was Rome.Lo! in yon brilliant window-niche.How statue-like I see thee stand.The agate lamp within thy hand!Ah,Psyche,from the regions which are Holy-Land!
