Revisiting Poetic Memoirs

I Am
by Poetry Authoress Victoria L. McColley

Michelle's Challenge
A Poetic Descriptive Compilation
a Few Varied Facets of Me....

I Am…

I am weakness overcome by strength;
I am insecurity within my confidence;
I am emotional with passionate love;
I am selfish with my generosities;
I am honest with my truths;
I am poverty overcame by womanhood;
I am a victim who became a survivor;
I am bruised within the damage of my loving heart;
I am fragile underneath my stolidity;
I am distrusting until I am shown trustworthy;
I am sorrows embraced by acceptance;
I am gentle underneath my callous exterior;
I am a lesson of life nurtured by wisdoms;
I am blessed with voices creative gifts & vision;
I am much more than I already know I am;
I am a child of God believing in The Holy Spirit;

I am imperfect with a perfect soul;
I am very spiritual;
I am Victoria L. McColley;
I am your den sister…

This poem made me cry a bit :) What a powerful piece of honest humanity. Your soul is so utterly honest in your poetry, which gives all your writing a frankness that is sometimes lacking in some peoples poetics. This was a very powerful write that went beyond dissecting it for me. I couldn't dissect it and say it was effetive or not. It is simply a lovely, honest and powerful poem. The pic is great :) It reflets the honest side of you that is a wonderful compliment to your sultry side and your sultry poetics

Peace and love you to :)
