WHY AM I ALWAYS WITH ME?


WHO ARE YOU?

One who is always
Hangin' around me
Is me.

How can I rid
Myself of...
Me

Maybe the way
Is to fool
Me

To think I'm another
Thus transferring
Me...to thee.

Then this day
I may say
Why are you
Hangin' round
Me?

--Steve

THIS IS MY FIRST One Shot Wednesday
SORRY TO BE LATE...

To accept and love oneself is the first step toward peace and harmony. This is wittily written, but profoundly felt, Steveroni.

When I was young, I grew to hate me. When I was older, I sought to find me. When I found me, I learned to like me. It wasn't until I listened to my HP that I learned to love me. You say it so much more poetically, though! :-D

Oh, Sam! He beat me here!!! And I wanted to come here first and say exactly what he just said. And I just wrote another comment, and it disappeared!!! Why do these things happen? But, that isn't important, Steveroni. What's important is these words, right here. I was trying to say, in my previous comment that disappeared, something to the effect that you put such deep thought and meaning into so few words... I really don't know how you do it. These are words that remind me of all those times I just scratched my head... and wondered... if I WANTED to be fooled. I loved every word!

And, thank you for the sweet nudge, Steveroni. I've been a bit out of sorts, lately, and I'm just beginning to get myself out of the funk. So, thank you for being so patient and so eternally kind.

Warmest hugs,
Nevine

Nevine said...

;-) I was just joshing about wanting to say exactly what Sam said. I mean, I would have liked to have said it like he did, but... that Sam... he's got his way with words, too. Love you, Steveroni!

Ah! can I hang around with you and your You?

Beachanny said...

When one starts to find one's voice it's as if you're split in two--the one you and the writer you. You found yourself here. Good write. I'd like you to visit my poem this week and see what you think of it.
I'm listed as mme.canongate. Thanks

We all wish to escape from ourselves at some time.

Carrie Burtt said...

Deep lines and the photo recall duality in reflections of nature.

Glynn said...

You're not going to get rid of Me that easily. Like this a lot.

G-Man said...

Cheer up Bunky!!
As long as you are reading the obituaries instead of staring in them...It's a Good Day!
Nice One Shot!

Terresa said...

I completely get this. I bug myself more than anyone ever bugs me, or has the capacity to. Funny, isn't it? The picture is stunning, as is the sentiment.

Scott said...

I am with you on this one Mr. Roni! We're taught to love ourselves (which aint easy!) but we can even take that to a whole new level lol. great bit of wit sir!

Jess Mistress of Mischief said...

:) This is a witty ditty! Love it!

JStar said...

I love this Steve...So brilliantly written :)

izzy said...

A counselor used to encourage me to
" Accept, embrace and celebrate "
who I am. Of course that took time !
thanks for writing I really love your piece here!

Betty Manousos @ CUT AND DRY said...

Love this post! Remarkable words!
How can we define love for another if
we cannot define the meaning within ourselves?
The truth is that when we give to ourselves we also give to others.

Do you love me Steveroni?

B ;)

Eric Alder said...

Sounds like you're hanging around so you can get to know yourself.

Nice One Shot, Steveroni!

RNSANE said...

Sometimes I really like my company but, on the days that I don't, I just can't get rid of myself!! On those days, I try to take a long nap!!!

Dulce said...

I just get so much joy just by reading the other people's comments... and if Nevine got to that point... well ! Imagine me!

So... let's say 'no comments'- all the best has been said

Only hey! Lovely- and ... hey!..

I ♥ my Veroni...
:)

Pete Marshall said...

moondustwriter said...

Quite clever my friend and some soul searching too.

Glad you shot it over to One Shot - glad to have you

Syd said...

Take care of yourself and don't beat up on Steve.

Superfluous Brunette said...

Brilliant! And aren't we so good at fooling ourselves...until we can no longer fool ourselves? :)
So few words, but say SO much!
