 SEEDS OF GROWTH by Pam

ME, MYSELF AND I (revised)




I find myself too concerned with "me, myself and I."
I need to give me a rest!
I need to find a chest of drawers
Without me in it;
Where my old clothes aren't hiding,
Where I can find a pair of your old socks
to put on me.

There I go again, you see?!
(This really isn't such a simple matter!)

I would be you for a day if I could.
But,even if I should try on your skin
I'd only end up stretching it
this way and that to fit ME!

Life is an intricate puzzle I think
But how can I put it together
If I'm just a spatter in each of its pieces?

I'm like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup;
I am the object no matter how I see it,
No matter how I choose to open it and eat it.
There I am, all cut up with nothing but clones of ME!

Boy, am I stretching my Point to idiocy!

I have always prided myself on my objectivity,
(note the sentence above contains 3 of me!!!)

Yet now, as I've come to bluntly see
Through my 'silly-putty' poetry
that I have justly lost this battle.

For I can find only one measly line
Lurking about in my overlong rhyme
In which "I" wasn't the subject of prattle!

And even at that, it was MY opinion!
 
by ME (oh, ugh!)


p.s. Thanks for putting up with ME! (smiles)
