Blogtember Day 9 – A Self-Portrait

Standard

I missed the Blogtember post yesterday as I was busy with an interview and also I was thinking about how to approach my self portrait.

Initially I was going to treat you all to a bit of hand-drawn artwork but I have decided on a montage of words and images.

ENJOY!

is at the centre of my being,

I believe it is the only way

to map your journey here.

 

 

From Stage to Page,

I took my first steps

opened my wings

and realised,

when you are on the right track

the breeze will carry you.

 

 

I travelled on God’s whispers to a new place.

A place where adventure

settled in the centre of my heart

 

 

I yearned to discover

more of the world. thai 6

I found beauty in small things thai 4

and realised

the road I was to choose open road

was not paved with Gold.

It was not paved at all.

 

 

My  soul was meant for rougher terrain.

Unspoilt by man.

God’s Country.

I am a bridge 1NZ3

between.

I hold the pieces together,

carefully mastering

the invisible construction

between mind

and heart.

 

 

There is more to me

than what you see.

A layer of me running deeply,

Hidden from myself for years.

 

 

I am

only discovering

it now,

As I take these first leaps

of faith,

Into unchartered waters.

Half way through my lifetime.

Maybe more,

maybe less.

 

 

Like an unexplored ocean bed barrier

it is new territory

I have opened

myself up

to discovering.

 

 

Life is too short to wait,

I only hope I am in time.

I now know that

this world hands

is what I look like,

truly.

 

This exposed self portrait of mine.
