A Definition of 'Me'

There is more than one label that defines me.
There are many characteristics you cannot see.
Reduced to elements, I’m worth only a few cents.
A concoction bearing my name has no pretense…

As a contestant, I competed with various contenders.
As a friend, I am a supporter and a caring ear lender.
As a column of strength, I try not to become hollow.
As an educator, I try set a good example to follow.

I am a kite waiting for a gentle breeze, so I may climb.
I am a custodian who sweeps away the sands of time.
I am a young child who resides in a body of maturity.
I accomplish, but still need a soft blanket for security.

I am always in transition, sometimes without realizing…
Each day brings a new avenue with thoughts visualizing.
I am a person with characteristics that tend to rearrange.
To define me you would have to include: subject to change…

The Fog

A veiled wall of misty low hanging clouds
Mysteriously conceals and restrictively shrouds.
Visibility is far from marvelous this morning…
Travelers appear from the fog with no warning.

With uneasiness, I peer into the cold space ahead.
I am in familiar surroundings, but feel lost instead.
The road before me beckons, as I apply the brake…
Accelerating without caution could be a serious mistake.
