Just Be Yourself - Poem by Mark Benniman

Just be yourself...which self shall I choose?

What are my expectations? What are your expectations?
What is the balance of power?
How do you see me? How do I see you?
How wealthy am I? How wealthy are you?
What is my status? What is your status?
What is my gender? What is your gender?
What is my culture? What is your culture?

Do I feel happy with the situation?
What are my expected outcomes?
What is the history of the relationship?
Am I being treated fairly?
Do I have the information I need?
What time of the day is it?
Am I wearing appropriate clothing?
What is the location?

Right then, I shall be...
