There Is More To Me Than "Myself"

'Be yourself.'
 
How?
 
I am so many different
People.
 
At the start of the day,
when the sun has not 
fully awaken herself 
and night still lingers,
I am Calm. 
I am Serene.
I am one with Earth.
 
In the middle of the day,
when I am aware of all
the souls that I must 
interact with, I am a 
mask.
I am a smile when you
need it and a tear — 
right on time.
 
But at the end of the
day,
when there is just the 
moon to keep me 
company, I am wild.
I am free, 
I am all of the words 
that stick to my throat
throughout the day;
vowels and syllables and
sounds that hid behind my
tongue. 
I am stardust and a girl with
the universe inside of me.
 
There is more to me than 
Just myself.
