Who I am

By joe devoy

On a train heading south

Inspired by a conversation with Jasmine Grimm

12/6/11

 

And she asked me

Why is it possible

So thinking for a while

I said, why not

 

Born pure

Open soul

Open mind

Open heart

 

Raised open

Something questioned

Something laughed at

Something ignored

 

Growing up

An easy road

Everyone a cynic

And the tickles of fear

 

What will they think

What will they do

What if I fail

Maybe not so

 

Growing older

Glimpses of youth

Coming around

Feeling easy

 

No more fear

All possible

All probable

None necessary

 

Who I am

Yes I am

What I will do

I will do

 

What I know

I know nothing

What I dream

I dream true
