Knowing Me (astral alignment)

Knowing me, as I do
This won’t happen

There’s no special alignment
Of stars or planets for me

For I am
Worthless, apparently
Not worth a little time or energy

Always I try
To make the right decisions
But they always seem to be
Poor in the end

I’m haunted
By sin and regret

Just once
I want it to go right
I want to be loved
I want to be the most important person
In someone’s eyes

Maybe even for just a week?
A day, perhaps?

I want to be held close
And tightly

I don’t want my motives questioned
I don’t want to take a backseat
Or be an afterthought

I want my heart to make just one
Good and perfect decision

But…

Knowing me, as I do
I know this won’t happen
It’s not written in the stars for me

For I am
Just…
Me

    1. I agree, that does seem to be the case oftentimes. For me, I noticed once the deep introspection passed and I was able to, with a clearer, more analytical mind, step back and review my own self, in whole rather than in the smaller parts, I could see my actual reality rather than from just the one small perspective… if that makes sense. I have found that the things I thought I needed, could be filled with other things quite as well, maybe better. I am content.
