I am me, as I have found.
Not as before, the silly child,
the mature, manly facade, or the
puppet, who moves at your beck and call.
I am me.

I may be somewhat erratic and eccentric.
I may be calm and routined.
I may be shy and quiet, or I may be boisterous
and gregarious.
But...
I am still me.

I like privacy and time to think alone.
I am not a snob or a recluse, for I can be
very warm and friendly.
I can give sound advice, or just be someone to talk to.
I am me.

Friends I welcome with open arms.
Intruders, I shut out.
My life is mine, in solitude,
unless I decide to share it.
because...
I am me.

I am one
I am unique
I am me.

Such is the way to immortality ;)

And I would guess that you do not stand alone.

Welcome to the forums, Majere

PS: have you been to "The Alley" lately and cast your vote for "on a roll"?
