Me

by Sanjida Shaheed

Somewhere deep
Inside me
I am still sixteen.
Or perhaps eighteen.
And sometimes I am
Just a child.
I am never really
My own age.

Somewhere inside
I am way older
And wiser
And warmer.
I am never really
My own self.

This elusive self
Has been around
All my life.

Me and my self.
I guess we will always be
Almost total strangers.
