Me, Myself and I

Words that define me are me, myself and I

I am not just the person with this friend

Or the one who did that

I am not just the person dating this guy

Or the one who said this phrase

The person who I am is not that simple

I am not just the person spending time with friends

Who looks right at home linking arms with another

And who smiles frequently and brightly

I am not just the person who goes on dates

Just to spend time together-just to see one another

And who laughs sweetly and loudly

I am not just the person who sits at home

Liking something on this website or another

And who sometimes can't bear to leave the room

I am mix of all those people but I am also more

I am power and goodness and joy

Sometimes I am light in the sky

But I can also be sadness and guilt and pain

Sometimes I am dirt on the ground

I am more and less but never

Never who someone else says I am

I am who I say I am

Words that define me are me, myself and I
