What Makes Me...Me - Poem by Michael J. Burt

is it the way i walk
or stand,
could it be the way i talk,
the glasses on my face,
the way my face is,
my eyes or nose or lips or ears
and smile that make my face,
my height my weight,
is it my shoes or
the jeans i wear,
the shirt that goes over my chest,
or is it my coat that i wear on the cold days,
the way i present myself,
love myself or the way i am myself,
my personality, sense of humor,
writing skills, social skills, or people skills
or the school i attend, or attended in my past,
my choice of friends, my choice of words,
genre of music that is my preference,
favorite poets or favorite musicians,
is it the one i choose to love
or choose not to love,
is it my relationship with my family
could this be what makes me...me
