I Know Myself

Photography by Linda Vives

I know myself

That’s what matters

Heard this

Read that

Is it true

Or hullabaloo

Utter brouhaha

Ha ha ha

I know myself

So do those who care

Who worked with me

Walked with me

Laughed with me

And all those who love me

Who supports my BPD

I know myself

So does my family

Dear friends still connected

Everyone knows me

And everyone cares

For this is reality

Not cyber factitious fantasy

  1. This resonated with me strongly. Having been judged many times over, I always found myself saying precisely those words to myself – I know myself. Social media, in particular, makes it so easy to form judgments on others and this is one of the reasons I struggle so much with social platforms. The thing is, so many don’t know themselves. Not truly. Thus, I believe it is a blessing that we do. And like your poem states, those who matter, they know us. Beautiful short poem.
