Poem: Thank You, Walt Whitman

A poem about the sudden inspiration, understanding, and love I discovered as I read Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself.

 

Thank You, Walt Whitman

 

How long have I been lost

wandering

through the jungle of my mind

searching

for answers I didn’t know I

needed.

 

This was not the first classic I’ve

uncovered

in my life yet it was the first to

demonstrate

the definition of myself has been

mistaken.

 

I am interpreted based on my

Appearance.

I am appreciated based on my

Profession.

I am connected based on my

Relations.

But they are not the me

Myself.
