Be Me - Poem by tochukwu nwankpa

Can I be you?
Shall i lose my personality
Oh how soft i will be
Just being anyone I want to be
Can I become an engineer
Bringing home veneers and calipers
Can I become a doctor
Bringing home a stethoscope and a microscope
but no I have to be me

Can you be me
With thoughts reeling and pen feeling
Nothing but something keeping me alive
Truths of my roots revealing and telling
Wars and legends told to minds and kept alive
Just being me

Being me is no ones business
tattered skeins of sky with sunshine
Just for me to farm and cultivate in my field
With plants and shrubs on my tuff
They grow deepening with many a meaning
So let it rain for me to be free

You have to be you and let me be me
For me being you and you being me
will destroy the world because
I cannot do what you do the way you do
Let me do my bit and you do your bit
For bit by bit we will reach our goal
Just by me being me and you being you
So let me be me and dont disturb me
