I've Had It All Along

I've Had It All Along

A Poem by ChidiJ

As I sit still and listen closely
This I see, this I hear.
I love to create.
To form something new from "not much".

It's what drives me
It's who I am, who I've always been.
I've had it all along.

I like nice things but I'm not vain
I am not impressed by fancy name brands
I'm not seeking approval.
Please make it unique, one of a kind, 
And it will be sweet music to my soul.

So, I'll create it.
I'll use the raw materials I already possess.
I'll cut and paste, I'll glue and tie.
I'll see a need and I'll find a way.
With each stitch and knot
I'll bring my hopes and dreams to life.
And enjoy a life more fulfilling.

Same goes for my heart.
My beauty, my worth.
My strength, my "best life".
I'll look within and stop looking elsewhere.
I'll listen and I'll believe 
And I'll create the life I've always wanted
From the raw materials that I've had all along.
For what I sought, what I seek
Has been mine all this while.
Yes, I've had it all along.
