Really me

Apple#248


What would it look like if I were really being me?


No more they’ll think I look silly

or I have to prove myself before the others

But it would be all delight and yes and why not and let’s do it!


What would it look like if I were really being me?


No more last time it failed

or I don’t think I will ever manage that

But it would be all possible and courage and take that step and today is the day!


What would it look like if I were really being me?


No more it’s too embarrassing to try

or there is too much shame around that issue

No more it’s easier to keep to the narrow field that I recognise

or I had better do it like everyone else.


No more I am afraid I’ll never find my place in the world

No more secretly I wonder if I am an undiscovered genius

No more people will never understand me

No more I am too weird too fit in.

But it would be all welcome home and all that is mine is yours and let’s sit and eat.


What would it look like if I were really being me?
