Lookin’ For Myself by Shel Silverstein

You may be lookin’ for me but I ain’t lookin’ for you
I’m still lookin’ for myself and I ain’t got time to look for nobody else
When I found who I am and where I am
And if you come round again maybe then baby maybe then
You wanna follow me but honey can’t you see
I don’t know where the hell I’m goin’
How can I know your mind when I don’t even know my own
Now when the road gets tough or when I get enough
Or maybe when I reach the end maybe then baby maybe then
So stick around or go away whichever one you choose
You ain’t got a single thing that I think I can use
And you and I ain’t shared a thing that I’m afraid to lose
You say that you love me but I don’t love you
I love someone I never seen as she lives in a place that I never been
When I realize it’s all in my eyes
Just one great big patent maybe then maybe then
Maybe then maybe then maybe then but I won’t say when
Maybe then baby maybe then

Some external links: The Bat’s Poetry Cave. — Fledermaus’s poetry site. Talking Writing Monster. — the irreverent and irrelevant chatter on subjects both serious and not quite. A free for all board. You can scribble anything on it without registration (but it doesn’t let spammers in). You can even post your poems. — a search engine from France. It’s an alternative because there are a few alternatives, like Bing, Duckduckgo, and Ecosia. And there is Yandex, the ultimate language-oriented search engine for the Russophone world. Commercial Links: Russian Commerce – the foreign trade assistance agency Other links: Poems and poetry in Russian (if you are reading this in English, as you obviously are, then you’d have to switch the language, the language switch is on the menu. More on languages)
