Random Thoughts of Me
by Christel Crews
American blood runs through my veins
I proudly own my heritage, its ups and downs alike
Short in stature, but tall in faith
Pessimism is the default,
Optimism is the goal
Rain makes me sigh with a smile across my face
Simple natured mixed with feminine complexity
Obsessive compulsive- to a certain degree
Type A: Perfection required especially of me
Flirtatious in a good mood,
Cynical 99.9 percent of the time
The wallflower in a crowd
Concerned with my appearance, fitness, and health
Tears remind that I am alive
Stars tell me I am not alone
Would rather feel pain than nothing at all
When all else fails, sleep never will
I desire love more than life itself
This is me...
Author's Note: self-explanatory, i hope... i think everyone should try to describe themselves while limiting words and whatnot -- this was for an assignment for school, but i figured i could post it here as well...

Yes, 'me'that is and who we want to be, we like to identify with.

And as the image which reflects us is not always the image we wish or even what we SEE, this speaks to the poet's distinct perspective, and that last thought will hopefully lead to the inevitable realization that LOVE and LIFE go hand in hand. Nicely done.

I think I relate to this a little too well, beautifully done.
