ME

Me …. 
By Anoush Harrison-Jackson

What’s the matter with ME?
Better yet, what’s the matter with YOU?
I am comfortable with ME---------

My eloquence, my ethnicity, my social demeanour,
My laughter, my insight, my shortcomings,
My shape, my grace, my pride,
My beliefs, my values, my devotion to my CREATOR
These are the things that COMPOSE me

So what’s the matter with ME?
Better yet, what’s the matter with YOU?
Don’t try to dilute or even defile me with your
Perceptions of how I should be………
Don’t try to ridicule or belittle my efforts
In a bid to confine me to where you think I should be— “my place”
Or “my fate” in the society (so-ci-ety)
So what’s the matter with ME?
Better yet, what’s the matter with YOU?
I am who I am
I’m, simply put, just ME!
Who are you?

    Thank you Elonore. I like who I am as well despite my flaws which I am working on. I guess everyone has flaws and sometimes it is these flaws that help to shape us. I am still in the shaping process I think.

    This poem was written with the hope that it would inspire people to be comfortable with who they are and to really contemplate on the things that make them who they are and accept that everyone is different and if such an individual desires to change he or she should because he or she finds it (the change) fitting or appropriate.
