Simply Being Me

On Life and Living

I need not put on airs,

a phony I'll never be.

The way I act and how I am,

I'm simply being me.

Giving myself to others,

and lending a listening ear.

To let a hurting friend,

know that I am here.

Its almost like a calling,

something I need to do.

I have a way of reading others,

their pain seems to show through.

So I use it with compassion,

this gift I have to see.

And I do it out of love,

I'm simply being me.
