The Me I Could Have been

Updated on May 10, 2013

Me

f not for war,
if not for pain.
If not for the worlds' crushing anger,
let me be the me I could have been.

If not for poverty,
if not for tragedy,
If not for a child's unheard cries,
let me be the me I could have been.

If not for heartache,
if not for torment,
If not for loneliness and strife,
let me be the me I could have been.

If not for the hammer upon my heart,
if not for the stain that clings to my soul,
If not for the seas that fill my eyes.
let me be the me I could have been.

As the darkness surrounds me,
may you cast away the shadows,
and allow a glimmer of light.

So if just for a moment,
before I go,
I may soar,
and be the me I could have been
