The Person That Is Me

by TOM KRAUSE

If ever you should meet me -
the image you may see -
is just a mere reflection
of the person that is me.

The person I am really -
the one down deep inside -
is made of many feelings
which I sometimes try to hide.

Feelings of doubt & worry -
wondering how I will fit in.
Feelings of hope & longing -
that someday I might win.

Feelings of frustration -
for answers I don't know.
Feelings for my loved ones -
relationships that grow.

Feelings of loss & loneliness -
of memories left behind.
Feelings of excitement -
for what I have yet to find.

So remember when you meet me
the image you may see
is just a mere reflection
of the person that is me.
