Poem: Let Me Be Just Me

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Let me be just me is about someone has a terminal illness or is in poor health. Many times we treat him differently. We should treat him the same. Let him live his life the way he wants too.

"Let Me Be Just Me"

Please don't grieve

while I am still alive.


Place your worries

in the hand of God,

let him handle them.


Treat me no differently

than yesterday,

before we knew of this illness.


Let me be just me,

like nothing has changed,

let me live each day

as I did before.
