I will wear me, coz I fit me best

You want me to wear you
Though you fit me not
Too large
Too small

You want me to wear you
Though you fit me not
Too tight
Too loose

You want me to wear you
Though you fit me not
Too long
Too short

You want me to wear you
Though you fit me not
There is just something
That’s a touch something

I cannot wear you
I will not wear you
Because I do not look like me
When I wear you

I do not look good in you
I do not feel good in you
I do not look like me
When I wear you

I’ve tried you on
Worn you
Walked around in you
Been you

You cinch
Where you should flow
And bag
Where you could sheath

It did not work
It will not work
It will never work
It must never work

I know
I’ve seen it
And been told it
You are really good

The best
Of you
Is best on you
And good on you

Your thoughts
Your feelings
Your ideas
Your stratas
Your profile

Observing me
Your mental palm
Feels the kinks in my grain
And catches on my burry edges
Jagged and irregular

Some I can tell you of their origin
Some from places I have long hidden
Some from places long forgotten

I leave you with nicks
And splinters
When you brush up against me

I’ll let you know
That I have tried to smooth me down
So that you could be more comfortable

But then I felt fatigued
My soul dimmed
My spirit darkened

You are beautiful
Stunningly so
You absolutely fit you best

Would you give that up
And wear me
Kinks and burrs

Come on and try out me
Wear me for a while
Perhaps for ever
I tease you
I do not want you to wear me
I cannot see me fit you

And even if you did fit me
Then there would be two of me
And I would not like that

There can only be one like each
Because each is already as each should be
And each is sufficient

Come now, and let us reason together
And agree from henceforth
That you will be yourself as I remain myself

And if you ever do hear
Of any trying to be another
That you will arise and voice a nay

That you will want them to know
That each is singular
Because each fits self best

So, I’m letting you know
That I will not wear you
I will wear what fits me best


I will wear me, coz I fit me best
