I am always finding new discoveries
about who I am
What about you?
MY OTHER SELF
Oh, part of me is mischevious and merry
possessed of a gypsy heart
that in rollicking , laughing abandonment
scoffs at my gentler part ...
Where did she come from?
this other self
that pounds like the ocean waves
until my mind can scare contain
the way she misbehaves ...
Tell me, shall I finally choose
the gentle and quiet ways?
or the capricious elfin-heart
that leads me quite a chase?
Yet, can I not be two-in-one?
for one is such a persister!
perhaps the staid could gently mold
her Romany-blooded sister!
