all of me III

i’m like the blind guys
& the elephant
looking at myself
in pieces
trying to figure out
who i am
based on just
a part
of me
but never seeing
the complete
picture
never realizing
who i am
as a whole.

more of the discovery of myself as a whole. it is up & down. wednesday i was joyful. thursday i was deeply sad. i am just trying to stay with what i am feeling rather than pushing away my feelings. just trying to connect the dots.
so far so good.

(for those of you unfamiliar–there is a fable about seven (?) blind men finding an elephant. the guy who found the tail thought it was a rope. the guy who found a leg thought it was a tree. the guy who found the ear thought it was a fan…etc.)
