Just Me

I am just a person,
Like you,
I wrestle with my shadows,
I don't always win.

Not above or beyond,
I am beside you,
Of the land,
Of the people.

My roots are ancient,
But I live in the now,
It doesn’t always make sense,
But I continue on.

There is our work,
I am a part of it,
Breathing life into it,
Lifting what I can.

I will always be just me,
Uncorrectable eyes,
Big heart,
Raw life adventurer.

See me as any other,
That is who I am,
Journeying the road,
Following the stars.
