This Is Me Poem by Lodigiana Poetess

This Is Me

Rating: 5.0

I can love and despise in equal measure,
some things I hate, but most give me pleasure
Some days I look great but inside I feel bad,
a smile on my face will hide all the sad.
My halo shines bright, to dazzle the sinner
that I can become if I am no winner.
My heart on my sleeve, my feelings I'll share
but if you betray me you'll see I don't care.
I'm clumsy and gauche and trip over my feet
but a more gracious person you never will meet
Impatient and hate to be waiting in line
but if you should need me you'll get all my time.
So many things scare me I'm not really brave
but loved ones in trouble I always will save
I'm clever and charming, my heart's made of glass
But if you should hurt me I'll just kick your ass
I'm complex, I'm simple, I'm crazy, I'm sane,
a font of all knowledge, but still a bird brain.
I'm lazy and busy, I'm messy, I'm neat
I'm work that's in progress and not quite complete.
I'm just who I am and some will think strange
but that's all there is and I guess I can't change

Thanks so much Sandra.Sometimes we try too hard to be what others want us to be..but ultimately we can only ever really be..ourselves..and as Oliver Cromwell once said..warts and all! I guess it's just a question of learning to love and accept all aspect of ourselves. Thank you so much for your kind words..Lodigiana

Lodigiana I'm again revisiting your gifted poetry and five deserved stars. And a thought struck me after rereading, so I'll tell it to you straight... Were you once a Climie Fisher fan. For this poem, your poem, shares the same title to one of their great songs. Was it your inspiration. Take care and whatever the answer a great poem and a great 80's song... This is me, I don't wear a disguise... Shaun.x.
