A Dictionary of Me


If there was a dictionary of me

That defined me

Combined me


A hundred or so terms,

That made up who I am,

A caricature like diagram


Which words would it contain,

That put together randomly,

Would somehow make up me?


Impulsive that’s for sure,

Whimsical, nonsensical, inclined to fantasy,

Hot-tempered, shy, reads endlessly.


There would be contradictory terms too,

Romantic ally practical, calm anger, reserved confidence,

Hyper poise, silent noise, utterly senseless sense.


And then the words I wish were there,

Noble, honorable, just and fair,

Loyal, sensitive, completely without fear.


And of course a section I would rather didn’t exist,

Angry, sad, feels misunderstood,

Oft-times uncaring, unthinking, unmovable as wood.


But still it would be interesting,

To see all those words that otherwise are just words,

Come all together like a flock of over-excited birds


And make up a figure, a reflection of all I am,

With the good bad and ugly,

The words of a dictionary that make up me
