Who am I?

Who am I?

I am Enigma

Wild like an Arabian mare

Unpredictable like a tornado

I am love and pain

I am night and day

I am light and shadow

I am poet and nerd

I am the student and the teacher

Sensuality flows through my veins

Naïve like a newborn dove

Astute like a haunting fox

Haunted are my eyes

Yet my heart remains untamed.

I am the philosopher stone

I am your mirror,

There is no hiding from me

You can ran all you want

Yet your legs will always bring you back

Wanting to know more

Seeking for a revelation

Of that which you don’t dare show

Yet I see it clear as day

I see your darkness,

I see your light

Yet myself I am unable to define.

As I look at my own reflection,

I wonder who am I looking at today

There are days when words flow like honey

And days where silence covers me like a fog

There are days when I feel like a wounded bird

When everything seems gray

And I can barely crawl

Those are the days my wounds bleed again

Where my mind battles with madness

As my shadow rises up and demands to dance

I surrender to her arms

For I am her and she is I.

As I let go of my desire to fight back

I can feel her loving embrace

“Trusts me” she whispers

And I let go to the abyss

As I am engulfed by its dark waters,

I think I will drown

Instead I am given the breath of life

Out of of the abyss I rise one more time

I can now feel my wings

I spread them wide

Like a falcon soaring through the sky

I can see everything

I am no longer blind

I wake up as if from a dream

All my senses come to life

Those are the days I feel flowers rising from my soul

My spirit brighter as hope spreads like a wild vine

Those are days when I can sing and dance

Where nothing is impossible

And I can defeat every obstacle

Who am I?

I am the tortured artist,

The philosopher,

I am woman and child

Who am I?

I am everything and nothing

I am the one you can’t describe

I passionately believe one person can make a difference. I write from my own experiences and interests. It is my greatest hope that by writing about my own challenges, victories, hopes and learnings, others may feel inspired to believe more in their inner power and to fully embrace themselves!


    1. Thank you😊🙏 I feel too many people spend too much time trying to demonize the shadow, failing to realize in doing so, they are demonizing a part of themselves. We cannot outran who we are, we can learn from our shadow; it has valuable lessons to offer and within those lessons “gifts” for our own self healing and growth.
