Reena’s Xploration Challenge #244 – Me, myself, I

Me, myself, I, love being me
Born and bred from the Philippines
Got a degree in Chemistry
Left home when I was twenty two

Visited Europe, such great place
Me, myself, I, love being me
First time to see snow and wow
Great to see but feeling the cold

I’ve met Him Indoors in the lab
Action and reaction, that’s us
Me, myself, I, love being me
After two years we got married

Moved to Munich and had the son
Cosy in our house with garden
Love travelling with Him Indoors
Me, myself, I, love being me*

* Quatern


I were me
I would find myself
Not get lost among others
By trying to please them
I’d be authentic
Truly me

** The Joseph’s Star

I am me, I am my own person
Inasmuch as I am happy
In snow, rain, wind or the sun
I can climb hills and swim in the sea

Am I cool or what with my glasses?
Anyone, anywhere I can be
And the same goes with my bandannas
Add sugar and milk with my tea

Moments come and moments go
Make me think of my priorities
Man, give me something that glows
Macaroni and cheese, please

Over the hills and far away
One story, one book for each one
On such a fine day
Only me, only one***

*** Trolaan

Me, myself, I
Passion through poetry and fiction
Glad I could do what I’ve chosen
Passion in doing everything fully
To swim and snorkel in the sea
Passion in learning new things
Life is full of swings and zings
Passion in teaching English
Don’t worry, I’m also British
Passion in meeting friends
Being me, don’t do pretends
Passion in shopping till I drop
I like my top, don’t do swap
Passion in ringing my Mom
Like giving myself a balm
Passion in skyping the son
Telling his pun, it’s quite fun
Passion with cycling with Him
Sometimes going to the gym
Passion in seeing the world
Kaleidoscope as it whirled
Passion in experiencing life
I think I’m a good housewife
Passion with different culture
Eyes not covered with a blinker
I think I’m living my passion
I always feel that I have won
I’m grateful to this brilliant world
Such dazzling and wonderful world
