That I am

Always too much

Yet never enough


Too much alcohol

And too little dignity

Too much make-up

Not enough clothes

Too much self-confidence

Or not enough smile

Or too much insecurity

Too much food

And not enough exercise

Too much muscle

Not enough fat


Or vice-versa


Too much sugar

But never sweet enough

Too much career

Not enough babies


Or vice-versa


And I could follow example

But wouldn’t he tell me

I am too much of a man

And not enough woman?


But isn’t he?


He is too much looking

Into the mirror

And casting its reflection onto me


And not enough letting me be


And when I look at myself

What else would I see?

Too much of him

And not
