I am one,
I am half.
I am two,
I am one.
For me there are no more,
but there can be less.

Broken I limp invisibly,
On two I stand tall.
I am not a leg,
I stand taller,
and hurt more when cut in 2,

I can mend to 1 when 2,
but quickly die when half.
I can see through you,
but no more than you show me.
I can be yours,
but olny if you are mine.

I come in many shades,
Once had many name,
but now have only 1.

I am one.

Just me.
You always say that nothings ever good enough but you need to stop comparing me Because: I'm not her. I'm not him. and I can't be what you want me to be. I struggle, ad I struggle to find that perfect place that's just mine. But I know that if I do nothing will ever been good enough for you. I'm not her. I'm not him. and I can't be what you want me to be. I can only ever be just me. Some nights I wander, wondering if I'll ever be good enough. But as I look upon the sky there's nothing there asking for me to change. So I'll just realize that I can only ever be just me. Because, I'm not her. I'm not him.

Perhaps more of a obvious riddle then a poem. Oh well. For those who are familiare with SanGuru's work, you see my inspiration clearly.

Though I've never been one for riddles (my mind is quite thick at times LOL I never get them ;) (Wink) this is really one to make you think. I don't think I've ever read a poem written in a fashion like this, it's very innovative and VERY original!

Your poetry never ceases to amaze me, excellent job once again :) (Smile)
