It Ain’t Me

“It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for,”*
No matter what you say.
You’re lookin’ for an actor’s part
I’m not equipped to play.

“It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for”
In everything you do.
You’re lookin’ for distractions brief
TO fill the void in you.

“It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for,”
Despite your whirling mind.
You’re lookin’ for the brilliant Light:
Your soul’s eternal shine!

*Quote from
“It Ain’t Me Babe” by Bob Dylan.


Written for Björn’s prompt at
dVerse.

  1. These are lines I want to hold on to:
    Despite your whirling mind.
    You’re lookin’ for the Light and more
    That shines in you each day!
    One of my greater struggles is my monkey mind–but I guess I’ll just keep trying to rein her in.

  2. I always loved this Dylan song. I especially like the idea expressed in your words here, do not look for something in me to complete you. In other words, I am me and you are you. You must accept me as I am and we can be together – I can never be thT sliver that completes your actual being.
