i am just me


I am just me

Yes, I am only me…

A person once careworn

And now, a bit carefree…

I like to sit and read

A life of contentment lead

To rudeness pay no heed

I just trim off the weed…

Mostly I do smile

And try to hide a frown

For it is now quite easy

To wear a thorny crown.

The years have mellowed me

For I know right from wrong

I ignore the rotten apples

For my spirit is still strong

Some days I am merry

And bubbling to the brim

On Others I am serious

Though never really grim.

The years have been a challenge

That I rose up to meet

So that, today, the future

I can, serenely, greet.

In myself, I am quite happy

I, do not, company need

But am equally content

To mingle, and to meet.

It has taken me years

To escape from my cage

Yes, it has taken me eons

To reach this mellow stage
