The Changeling

That was another lifetime . . .
Life has been full of many lifetimes . . .
There was the lifetime of a need to be healed,
And a lifetime of needing to be loved.
There was a search for something to believe in spiritually.
And there was a need to be recognized for all I knew
Or thought I knew.
There was a need to belong
And there was a need to help others.
There was a lifetime of needing to feel powerful
and a need to teach others.
And in the process of it all
There was a need to know myself
And a need to forgive myself
For doing the best I could do
at any given time.

I have been a changeling,
And perhaps I will be so
For the rest of my days.
