To Be Someone

Photo by Edward S. Curtis: Apsaroke warrior with bow and arrow in position, two extra shafts in his bow-hand, and a fourth between his teeth ready for instant use. Published 1909.

To be you can let yourself go until you just exist,
but to live,
you must be someone.
To be someone,
you must have a bone,
not be afraid to show the bone,
and to lose the meat by the wayside.
