#frapalymo – If I Were Me

If I Were Me

If I were me
What would I be
Would I be strong
Holding on too long
To something not meant
For the likes of me

If I were me
Who would I be
Would I be a mother
A wife, a sister, a friend
How can I be everything
And nothing at all

If I were me
Where would I go
Leave it all behind
To find the elusive answer
Of what it means
To be me

#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog The Bee writes. Today’s prompt is “the I” and tomorrow’s will be a continuation with “the you.” I’m always amazed at how sometimes the words just flow when I at first don’t know what I’m going to write about. I’ve even already written tomorrow’s poem!
