Finding 'Me'

Once upon a time,
Cronies we were!
And there fell the guillotine;
separating 'Me' from me!

I was torn into half.
And 'Me' was lost somewhere.
There were born two contrary worlds,
Separated by the guillotine.

Went I in the search of
The missing 'Me'
Mountains and valleys,
strayed I barefooted.
Through sands and thorns,
leaves and waters,
fumbled I,
for the missing 'Me'.

Gave away my body,
Clock by clock.
Bled away my body
drop by drop.
and there I fell
surrendering in the battle!
Ah! Coward!
Pricked my conscience!

Then rose I,
with the soul of a Phoenix!
With all the strength,
hiding beneath fear,
Then started I,
in the search of 'Me'!

There stood 'Me',
In the lonely night! !
There stood 'Me'
gleaming in moonlight! !
There we were,
'Me' and 'I'
Then was born 'We'!
with my dreams
Satited! !

    This is such a wonderful poem on finding who you really are. I know I've said it before but this is the perfect poem to say it again. Be true to you! Always! Those who like you will like you for you and those who don't are most likely people you don't want to be with anyways! (Report) Reply

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
