Elmo, Big Bird, and Cookie;
Oscar, Ernie, and Bert
Share traits within ourselves you just might notice
During a Sesame Street concert.
Zoe, Grover, Snuffleupagus
And even Telly too
Remind us that each character lurks beneath
Or maybe it’s just my brew.
I’ve many times been like Oscar,
Feeling like a grouch.
Others like Cookie wanting to devour goodies
While sitting on the couch.
I’ve been scared and nervous like Zoe,
Often worried much like Telly,
But also happy and giggly like Elmo
Laughing til I hurt my belly.
I’ve obsessed like Bert and relaxed like Ernie
And been kooky just like Grover.
Like Big Bird, I love to learn, try new things,
And ponder thoughts over and over.
Elusive like Snuffy,
We all have moments when people may not believe
In all that we are, all that we feel
And all that we can achieve.
So when you’re looking to define yourself
And you can’t make heads or tails,
Just look down the road at the Sesame Street gang,
Then on to blaze your own trails.
