The 'me' that I was
Stares back to the 'me' I am today
Wordlessly filled with respect
The 'me' that I am
Looks at the 'me' of yesterday
Staring with great admiration.
I used to believe falling will shatter me
I used to believe losing people will weaken me
I used to believe society will never accept me
I used to believe my insecurities will cripple me
All I really needed to believe in was myself.
The 'me' a year ago is still me
The 'me' of that time shattered to the ground in order to give birth to the 'me' of today
The 'me' of that time is the reason the 'me' of today is smiling.
The 'me' of that time is the reason the 'me' of this day is strong.
So, what is love?
Is it falling for a person?
And then repeating the cycle
Or is it falling for that me
Who helped me from not breaking
Love is just a four-letter word
With many complexities
Which demands respect only
Because the yesterday’s 'me' is still me.
