SHOW ME WHO YOU ARE

A piece by Cajun poet Carol Prejean Zippert

You ain’t showed me nothing yet
When you smiling
cause the sun is shining
When you happy cause your day went right
You ain’t showed me nothing yet
When you say
you got it together
cause you know
ain’t nothing happening
And you think you free
when all you doing
is backing off
You ain’t showed me nothing yet
til you live like you believe
in somebody
other than yourself
And you struggling
to make something right
somewhere in this world
You ain’t showed me nothing yet
til you show me
who you are
by what you do

From Carol's collection I Don't Want to Be Rich, Just Able
