WHO AM I?

Who is this little, overweight,silver-haired lady
.who has difficulty walking and is
in the shabbiness of years.
This is all most people see
when they look at me.
They cant see further than the lines on my face.
They dont try to see what is below the surface.
They dont see my mind.
They ask me what I have done with my life.
They dont know I have qualifications
and they dont see what I have achieved.
The only difference between me
and the people asking the questions
is that I got off my big fat backside
and used my brain.
How do I explain that it’s not what I have done
but the fact that I had a go
instead of wishing I had done.
I explored the possibilities that existed.
I released the control on my mind.
I have been a mother, a lover, a scholar,
a fighter, a worker, an artist and a victim,
all at the same time.
Like everybody else I have my weaknesses
and my strengths.
I have looked for love in all the wrong places
and often wondered if I was truly loveable.
At times I am riddled with self doubt.
So, who Am I?

I am a work in progress.

I AM ME!

By Jacqui Kilcoyne

I am learning something new all the time and just learned how to use textures.

I use a Sony a500 and Sony Nex 3 cameras and various
lens.
I hope this year, 2012, will be a good one for everybody.

    Jacqui such beautiful words. I can understand what you are saying. When you get older younger people especially only see you as you are and as you say they can’t imagine the things you have done . I often say now joking but mean it " I haven’t always been old you know I was young once ". Who you are inside is much more important. Lilianx
  • Thankyou Lilian. It’s not only the young ones. A couple of days ago a friend from Bolton phoned me. She is a year older than me. She asked what I was doing these days. And when I told her I had just enrolled in another course and about my photography she said “Can you not find owt better to do”. Ughhhh

    Well I know Jacqui when I told someone who lives in our street what I had started to do she said laughed and said “I think you should get out more” If she had thought about it I am getting out more and I am using my brain also instead of being stuck in front of the Tele.
