                    WHY I AM ME?

      I am me because a change in personality 
would cause a disturbance.
      I am me to conquer the universe.
The world is in turmoil 
      but happiness is for us to ignite.
I did not chose a simple life.

     The creatures of the earth are not at all salient.
The noise that forms states violence.
     We are not those creatures.
We are people individually set and expressive.
     We live as a brittle branch ready to break in the storm.
Never do we fail to overcome when life 
     before us touches our arms with a rub.

Walk up right not on all fours.
      Your back is strong.
You know the world can be cruel.
      Don’t deny that times are hard.
Know with a rightful mind 
      you will be justly rewarded.

Why am I ME?
      Because I refuse to be you…
I am not stating that similarity cannot exist.
      I am just ME in any relationship 
even when I lack what you have.

      In all said, I am 
integrity and self-esteem.
      Let us embrace 
as women in solidarity.

      The creatures of earth 
are not at all silent.

    Verlena, you are the sun you shine so bright. I love that you are uniquely you, it comes out in all your works. You're not competing to write a better scene, you are performing in a different play. I celebrate YOU!
