I choose to be Me

I choose to be Me

image

I’d choose to be me once again-
Not one shade fairer like most suggest;
Not one pound lesser than most these days;
Not one inch taller than the average.

I’d choose to be me once again-
Not one year older or younger- just same;
Not one sibling less, a family of eight;
Not one scar less from childhood charade.

I’d choose to be me once again-
Happy and bubbly, naive as they say;
Loving and living and making mistakes;
Praying and dreaming and writing away.
