Being Me

Being Me

1 min 14K 1 min 14K

Odes and tales on me are befitting of books

I am a woman who will adore them

Romanticize and ruminate may be

But I see through hollow words


Do not confine me to a book

I am the ink that will float above paper

And splash your wall with colors

Sit up and brighten your life


Do not confine me to a song

For I am every lyric that tunes carry

I will infuse music into listless lives

Enjoy the melody when your soul lulls


Do not confine me to ignorance

For my wisdom surpasses ages

I am the elixir you seek

Quench your thirst for sanity


Do not confine me to your heart

For my love is magnanimous

I will shower it on fertile and arid lands alike

Cherish it and heal when in agony


Do not confine me to this world

For, I am the sun of fragile planets

I have universes to protect and nourish

Revolve around me to sustain and grow


Unchain me from unreal expectation

Release me from trivial bondage

But this freedom you supposedly give,

Was mine to take when I pleased


But I refrained, in hope that you will see me

For all that I was, I am and I will ever be

For the simplicity and magnificence,

of just being me.
