A Song for me

I first met me at the age of awareness,

I was curious, serious,

Eager to explore my consciousness.

Who is this me?

A timid child out of sync?

Fragile? weightless?

Seeking to learn my individuality.

 

Day by day, opinions formed me,

Values were handed over to me;

Unquestionable!

Rule were laid out to me;

Unbreakable!

Who is this me?

A timid child not equipped to think?

Fragile, weightless

Seeking to learn my ingenuity

 

I was a teen,

Not eighteen

When I locked the child within.

For you see, I’m forced to grow and glean

What it takes to survive and show a sheen

 

 

The journey of my life is the search for ‘me’

I swam in oceans that called ‘me’ a fish

I flew in skys that called ‘me’ star

I searched in books that named ‘me’ a rook

Misguided, misdefined, misunderstood

Who is this me?

 

The day I found ‘me’ my life began

Revelational!

Springs in my steps I walk taller

Sensational!

Now I sing the songs of purpose

Adieu confusion, enter reason

Eulogies to me, a song for me.

 

Poem from ‘Lest we forget’
