I am Me

I am me…
What you see…
A decoy.
My destiny has things laid on a platter.
I choose me happiness for keeps.
So when you see me reel in laughter,
Know it’s cos there’s excess in my lips.

I am me…
In between.
Like a bee…
I’ve got no sting.
I’m a double edged sword.
So dangerously blunt.
I stand by my word.
An equivocal stunt.

I am me…
I am glee…
Existing in feint.
I dissemble, dissimulate;
I shield, shelter, and shell.
While I my outward create,
I am me in my inwardly self.

I am me…
Who I choose to be.
I am me…
