Befriending Self: Stream of Consciousness

The hardest ever friendship to make is with our inner self.

The Soul unto itself 

Emily Dickinson, 1830 – 1886

The Soul unto itself

Is an imperial friend

Or the most agonizing Spy

An Enemy could send

Secure against its own

No treason it can fear

Itself –  its Sovereign  –  of itself

The Soul should stand in Awe

  1. Nice! I especially like the truth of “The hardest ever friendship to make is with our inner self.” It took far too long for me to marry these two things – my happiness and my love of self. Thank you for a lovely reminder to preserve this vital marriage.

What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
