like me

I'm not beautiful like you.
I am not smart like you.

I am beautiful like me.
I'm smart like me.

I have some book learning
and some common sense.

I may not be the well rounded
individual you hoped for,

but what I do know is that . .

tomorrow I'll be another day older


I'll still be learning.

The Snow Fairy - Claude McKay

Throughout the afternoon I watched them there,
Snow-Fairies falling, falling from the sky,
Whirling fantastic in the misty air,
Contending fierce for space supremacy.
And they flew down a mightier force at night,
As though in heaven there was revolt and riot,
And they, frail things had taken panic flight
Dow to the calm earth seeking peace and quiet.
I went t bed and rose at early dawn
To see them huddled together in a heap,
Each merged into the other upon the lawn,
Worn out by the sharp struggle, fast asleep.
The sun shone brightly on them half the day,
by night the stealthily had stol'n away.
