First I was me,

Selfish as can be,

Wanting everything from A to Z

And wanting it all for me.

Then I became we,

A part of an us.

I learned to share, give and take

I learned how to trust.

Next I was you,

Believe me it's true.

I would rather give than receive,

It was you I wanted to please.

Now I am them,

A family man.

Giving my children,

All that I can.

If you look real close,

It is easy to see,

I am older and wiser,

And no longer a me.

One of my picture poems has found a home at the top of a Super Bowl Winner's Facebook Page.  Check it out.

Well, I think that's pretty cool, anyways.

    Thanks for checking it out Andrea. The poem has now been shared on 4 other sites and has over 300 views. I'll see if it keeps its momentum and see how long he keeps it pinned to the top of his page. Thanks for checking it out and leaving a comment on the page.
