If We Didn't Have Birthdays
If we didn't have birthdays, you wouldn't be
If you'd never been born, well then what would you do?
If you'd never been born, well then what would you be?
You might be a fish! Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob! Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of hard green tomatoes.
Or worse than all that ... Why you might be a WASN'T.
A Wasn't has no fun at all. No, he doesn't.
A Wasn't just isn't. He just isn't present.
But you ... You ARE YOU! And now, isn't that pleasant.
By: Dorothy Aldis
I look just like my mother.
I'm the image of Aunt Bee.
My nose is like my father's
But I just want to look like ME!
There's no one in
This whole wide world
Exactly just like me.
I am me and
You are you,
Don't you see?
I am Me
I am special because I am me
And there's nobody anywhere just like me
I have my own shape and my very own size
My very own hair and my very own eyes.
I like what I like, and dislike some things too.
You're special too, but I can't be you!
'Cause the very best person that I can be ...
I'm nobody! Who are you?"
By Emily DickinsonI'm nobody! Who are you?
How dreary to
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
