   "THE REAL ME"




warm memories float in the air
images that arent there
i look into my mind
to see a brief resume of me
laughing ,smiling.shouting
a young man isee
full of joy,no worries
taking on the world
spoiling for a fight
the world was my oyster
nothing touched me
i was out of sight
i did not care then you see
i was handsome and free
i broke a few hearts
had afew false starts
maimed by my ego
not slow to have a go
i would look you in the eye
see your fear grow
you wouldnt say a word
guess i would,nt have heard
but then i met you
my armour came down
i invited you in
i felt i could begin
a new me emerged
my old self was purged
i was taught how to love
a new conceptwas opening up
so if you thought you knew me
take another look and see
i was always there
just hidden by lack of care
this is the real me
THIS IS THE REAL ME.
