I still count

Do you ever feel invisible?
 At times it happens to all of us.

We just want to shout out

I'm still here!

So I wrote this little verse below.
I feel better now!

 i still count

sometimes it's necessary to stand out
to be different
to shout

damn it!
i count!

i’m here
do you

what i’m
truly meant to

i may be old
i may be gray
but baby oh baby
i’m here to stay

one more day
one more year
one more ride

and only one

that keeps me movin’
and rockin’ and

I may be shakey
I may be breaky

but baby oh baby
there’s no maybe

i’m still here
rockin’ and
a grovin

so give a cheer out
when you see
me about

i may be old
but I still

This is absolutely beautiful Reena, and the photograph you chose for it is equally so.
i think you're right in that we all feel this way at times, but for me there is the flip side...sometimes when things are really hectic, just wanting to be invisible for just a little while!! :-)

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

sweet! :) and i also agree with lisa's comment that it's nice to fade into the background too these days...

(i have to look up my butterflies and my wildflowers, but i've found some great Texas sites for both...) :)

That is awesome! I agree with Beth, that could be a song.

Tracy said...

I truly feel like that on some days...and I think that's why blogging is so important to me becuase there are always blog friends who acknowledge me and give me that validation.
YES, you count; I'm here to tell you!
