You are you

You are you

not me

or he

or she

you are

you

perfectly

you!

Eyes

ears

mouth

cheeks

and

chin

elbows

fingers

knees

and

toes.

Different

than me

and he

and she

you are

you

perfectly

you!

Your thinks are your thoughts

your breath is your rhythm

Your heart is your drum

all uniquely you.

Different

than me

and he

and she

you are

you

perfectly you!

Your journey

takes twists

and turns

and ups and downs

Round and round

Passing me

and he

and she

this makes

you

perfectly

You

You are absolutely

not me

but I love

you

and you should

love you

too!

    • You know what Elsie when I wrote that I wasn’t even thinking about how he and she could be interpreted as my parents. I was meaning he and she as in the people around us. That’s what I love about poetry, it can always be interpreted in different ways.

  1. I love this line.. “your breath is your own rhythm” and the last line, “you should love you too.” It’s so vital for our health and sad that it gets forgotton sometimes.
