I don't have it in me
To be what you want me
to be
To be what i ought
to be

Who is me?
A somebody that already is?
Or a somebody that is still becoming?

How far do i stretch out
before i stop being me?
How far do i stretch out
to become me?

How far do i stretch out
to become me? - the key is 'ME' - the 'me' portrayed by you, or the 'me' defined by others? that makes a lot of difference...

Excellent questions. I wonder if the answer has something to do with the point at which we reach so far we lose our footing.

Good question, when you find the answer, blog it!

Me ... changes daily in small increments. Me evolves and devolves some days. The basics of Me stays the same. Kind of like the body of an octopus where was the arms keep flowing around attached.

I think this is every thinker's dilemma. And the lucky one who gets the the answer of this question is beleived to attain his/her "Moksha".

Nice Poem and Long time.
