Being Me

Poetry From Home



I am here to make change in the world,

deep change that will stand the test of time.

I am here to bring me into the world,

and help others to step forward as themselves.


I need not contort myself or strive to be different,

remaining true to myself is key.

I need not do what everyone else is doing,

I must do what I am called to do.


I must own my journey,

not look to others to define it.

I must not go at the world’s pace,

but go at my own varied pace.


I must bring me fully into the world.

I will let me bubble out

in my gentle, thoughtful and deep way

touching the heart and souls of the world.


I will live as myself,

always remembering the gift that being me is.

I will not give up

on being me.
