Me: A Poem

Updated on September 1, 2012
Source


Oh, selfish heart,


I wish you’d break apart,


Into a million pieces,


So maybe then,


You’d finally see,


It’s not about me.



If they divide,


Will my ego become less wide,


As I separate,


Can I truly become smaller,


Or will they try to divide and defeat,


As they slowly converge and meet?



Oh, selfish heart,


As you break apart,


Into the tiniest pieces,


Please don’t converse,


So you can see,


It’s never been about me.

      f: I wouldn't say I was a number person yet, but I am becoming one through tutoring math. So, I understand what you are saying. Thanks!

      Erin, this is a lovely poem with an important message. Often our egos do need to be broken to find the proper balance between self-love and humility. I love the imagery and the photo fits perfectly. Keep up the good work! You have a talent.

      Well, I see; not only a flair for words but also for math; with a lot of ppl it's either/or; like, a number person or a word person. If you are both, then, all the better.

      Blessings.

      f: Well, I would consider it a compliment if someone called me that. :) It might if I tutored in writing or language arts, but I'm only tutoring in math right now.

      Yes, I guess you could even be called an imagery wordsmith, right? :) (Good for tutoring business, too.)

      That poem is interesting. It reminds me of a piece I wrote many years back as a teenager. I will probably post it too. I am enjoying this. Good job.
