Inside Out

Susan (age 4)


I’m still here

It’s the same me

From last year

I am older

yet I’m not

Just my outside

changed a lot

I still day-dream

I still fish

On the first star

make a wish

Smelling flowers

Christmas eve

telling stories


Can you hear me

Here I be

Still the same girl

Yes, it’s me.

    Wish I could go back in time. I feel the same way. Maybe that’s why I keep writing about how past meets present; I just wish I could find the gap between them in order to scape from the dictatorship of passing time.

  4. Hi Susan,
    I can tell it’s you in the photo, you still have that playful grin. I, too like fishing, though I seldom get the chance these days. My boat hasn’t been out of the garage in years.

    1. That photo was in our local newspaper, back in the day.
      I was featured as a fishing derby winner. Can still remember the evil looks from the older boys.
      I sure SHOWED them! LOL
      Thanks Helen,
      Wish we had known each other, back in the day. What a longtime friendship it could have been:-)

  5. Beautiful way of expressing your longing and also ready to face the reality ….
    And also yes, years may change us outwardly ,but whatever changes others may find in you ,you are you….very interesting..
    Thanks for visiting me dear..

  6. I am reminded of the phrase, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” Time is a strange thing–so much changes, yet the same person stands to meet those changes. Sweet poem, beautiful reflection.

    Warm wishes
