    So when do I become I again?
    Is it when I forget about the past
    and start ova and begin again?
    Or is it when I start to not care?
    Maybe it's when I believe life is
    so unfair....

    So when do I really become I?
    When I start to think 'our tyme'
    passed us right on by?
    Probably when we both forget
    above da use to be love?
    The love that came from 'the
    Great above'?

    So when do I become me?
    Is it when I am intrigued by life
    and life's greater things?
    Maybe it is when I realize it's
    not all about my wants,
    but about essential items and needs?

    once you've been a "we"
    it's very hard to go back to that "I"
    wish I knew...how to get back...
    love your flow girl!

    I agree with angelicsage on this one, When so much of self gets entwined in another, the self is hard to find.
