Who will I be?

Who will I be?


Each morning I pause, to give thanks for my glee

Throw love to the world, and think … who will I be?

A builder, a painter, I spread out my wings

A teacher, a comic, or a woman who sings?


I want to be kind, honest, and strong

And I’ve learned that in life, it’s okay to be wrong

The mistakes I have made, they taught me the most

The greatest of which, is never to boast

Or to think my opinions, and critiques should be cast

On to those who’ve experienced, a much different past


There are so many options, when you’re open to life

And so many thoughts, that can fill you with strife

You can be the creator of positive energy

Make it part of your essence, treat others tenderly


Or cast disapproval, on how people behave

Create negativity, which makes you a slave

To thoughts that don’t give, happiness or peace

They’ll eat at your soul, and fill you with grief


There are so many choices, to make every day

But the most important of all, is to live in a way

That brings hope, love and joy, to all those you know

Spreading positive energy, is yours to bestow.


Each day I set out to make someone laugh

To give more to the world, than I have in the past

I’m not always able, to live up to this goal

But I’m hoping the effort, will build up my soul.
