Becoming Me

Becoming Me

A Poem by M Lamont
"

Thanks to Cat for the inspiration!

"

 

I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up
Not a policeman
Not a soldier
Not a fireman
 
I never knew what defined me
It is not located in the dictionary
It cannot be told to me by another
It is not found in my mind
 
I do know the difference between growing up and getting older
I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
But as I am getting older
I am finding the definition of who I am
It is each day of my life that becomes me

Very true! I like how you said "I do know the difference between growing up and getting older," because most people don't know this! Thanks for asking me to read this poem!

How true. We should count our days as blessings for certain. Very prophetic write, my fellow Virginian. Thank you for sharing this - quite enjoyable.

***STANDING OVATION****
Oh, yay!!!! I love this piece!!! It's so great. I followed the worlds along somewhat solemnly, but in the end they rose me up and filled the room. Very, very good piece. So glad you wrote it and shared with us!!! You rock!

I like this one!

And i think it is something many of us get confronted with.
You expressed this emotion very clearly, and with such meaningfull sentences!

Great job!
