To Be Me




By Sharon A. Ricard


In the midst of mass confusion

I can find but one conclusion

My mind is sick

For my heart is broken

And so I reach

For worldly token

But it’s all vanity

My life’s insanity

I starve my soul till it aches with emptiness

Till my body shivers with unsteadiness

I’ve lost my mind

It’s all so cruel

Just say my purpose

‘Cause I’m just a tool

I’ve lost myself

Forgot myself

Somewhere along the way

I try to remember what it’s like

To not just do

But also to be

To be whole

To be pure

To be good

To be calm

To be content

To be courageous

To be wise

To be kind

To be godly

To be ME
