“Who Are You?”
The kind of person I am
Well here it is:
I am rainy days and sunny beaches
I am Volkswagen vans and fuzzy peaches
I’m a ‘72 Stingray
In glittering green
I am hot cocoa with marshmallows
I’m the space in between
Like Dave Matthews sang
John Mellencamp’s Jack and Diane
I am indoor and outdoor
I’m an unfinished plan
But tell me about you
And we’ll get somewhere new
Are you gourmet or fast food?
Are you spaghetti or stew?
Are you white sparkly tulle?
Are you farm dogs and mules?
Do you tan in the sun or read in the shade?
Do you run and play sports?
Are you bought or homemade?
For these are the things that might set us apart
But often these things draw you close to my heart
It doesn’t matter to me if you’re yellow or blue
For I could be pink and I’d still love you
The ultimate test of who we are is
Whether we love and how much we give
