“I write only because
There is a voice within me
That will not be still.”
-Sylvia Plath


There’s Me and then there’s Her,
Her hides even though she’s there.
I want to be Her,
But Me cuts off her air.

Her can be Me,
But that’s not right.
Because Me is herself,
And herself would be contrite.

Me could change,
Because Her is a dream.
Then Me would be happy,
And have a better self-esteem.

But Me shouldn’t change,
Me is herself.
Even though Her,
Is another in itself.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem one day while I was thinking about alter egos. I personally have felt at times as if I could be someone different. And maybe that person is inside of me and I just won't let it out.
