Define:me

me: used by a speaker to refer to himself or herself as the object of a verb or preposition

 

but how does one

define 

me

a being

not contained within the boxes

of societies limits, their games, their standards

a being

limitless

reaching into the stars

to pull down the heavens

a being

sometimes powerless

crushed under the weight

of cruel fate

and yet

still alive

because

the fear of death outweighs

the weight of fate

 

me

ever changing

something different every day

as small as a paper cut

as large as a broken heart

too shattered to pick up the pieces

and yet

i always seem to repair it

some way or another

in the land of empty promises

and lost books

 

and me

the essence of fall weather,

of a warm cup of tea held in numb hands,

the gentle strum of a guitar,

and fingers laced together

me

undefined

because

a definition does not leave room for change

but I am change

I do not fit in a dictionary

You will not find me in words

instead 

you shall find me in

the gentle rustle of the leaves

the end of a good book

the smile of an old friend 

and

you shall find me

within everything.

Me
