I'll Be Me

Made myself small 
So you would love me.
Instead I disappeared.
Chased my shadow for awhile
But it got away.
Gone.

Trod lightly on your ego cause,             
I loved to see you smile,
Hear you laugh.
And I was glad to be wrong 
So you could be right.
But if I ever find myself again,
I'll be me.

    Wow! This is beautiful! I love the message. Ever so often we lose ourselves in order to please someone else. But the truth remains, only by being true to ourselves can we be truly happy. Just lovely Beverly.
