I’m creating myself today
With some scraps and threads;
Things I almost threw away;
An old garment in tatters and shreds.
The bits of thread are hopes and dreams
Saved for quite a while;
Memories of ideas and schemes;
So many of them just make me smile.
It’s good I kept all the treasures;
That truly is wise;
Though subtle, they bring such pleasure,
Even when they come in a disguise.
Though tattered, garments are so warm,
Filled with feelings dear;
Like patches in a quilt they form
Parts of my self so precious and clear.
Tomorrow I will start again
To build one called me;
To make this self my very best friend;
A new creation I’ll ever be!
