Palette of Self

All that I am

All that I could be

All that I dream

All these worlds before me

Like a palette of selves

Yet so limited I feel

So many possibilities

And each lessening the other

Strength lessens tenderness

Dominance lessens humility

Calm lessens joy

Peace lessens deepest emotions

Charisma lessens empathy

 

Which path do I travel?

Which road do I take?

Which self do I become?
