If I were me

If I were me
I would do things differently
if I were me
and not the shadow of who I could be.

If I were me
Perhaps I would see
all earth’s forests
for the tree.

But if me was I
he’d cry
for all the wasted time
in the wasted lie.

For I is not wise
not yet and not here
it needs this me
to get forever more near.

If we were us
we would see
that we’re exactly
what we need to be.
