Parts of the Whole
I am the one who longs to be Superwoman,
Yet plummets into despair as I push against
My true self.
I am the one who wants to travel the world,
To experience the sensation of wealth
And the hopelessness of poverty.
I am the one who protects you from those
Who would harm you. I shield you from any evil
Which may be near.
I am the one who encourages your inner artist.
The one who battles depression,
The one who brings you joy.
I am the one who is tucked in a small corner
Of your heart. I remind you of the innocence of
Childhood and how easily it is lost.
I am the one who travels on your journey.
I have been with you since the beginning.
I will remain by your side until your work is done.
