A Balanced Approach to Wellness

Poem-Me Myself I

Here is the first of three poems from the book Connection—A Collection of Wisdom Poetry in the section “Connection to Myself”:

!!Me!!

Me, myself, and I.

The same and yet different.

Me is the part that is
usually unsure and needing assurance.

The part that wants
to be noticed but missed.

The part that cautiously advances
yet jumps at the opportunity
to experience change.

The part that sees the needs of others
and holds back.

The part that sees the needs of me
and holds back.

The part that craves love
and then becomes afraid
when love is received.

The part that understands
the desire for friendship
although friendships are not
always pursued.

The part that recognizes
personal blocks and
self-imposed limitations,
sometimes caving in and
sometimes not.

Me is wary and
hopeful and
deliberating.

Me can be too wary and
too gullible and
too exacting.

Navigating life through
Me thinking can be
safe but restricting.

Creating relationships through
Me thinking can be
supportive but restricting.

Living life through
Me thinking can be
satisfying but restricting.

Me thinking
is part of
balanced living.

Me, myself, and I.

The same and yet different.
