Who am I?

Who am I?

Who am I? 

I wonder who I am. 

A wanderer? 

I heard a lot of mouths yelling so.

Water?

Dancing around with its own flow?

A patient?

Lying in his bed to die slow.

 

I wonder who I am.

A son, a friend, a lover, a brother?

Who am I?

Someone unknown even to my mother?

 Wait!

 Let’s cut all these philosophical crap 

This time I ain't falling on any wordy trap.

I can't live anymore with this unknown me 

Oh please!

Make me believe I form I can be free.

 

I wonder who I am.

 Help me, my mate!

Just cut me in pieces,

Peel me down to ashes,

Tear my chest apart 

Examine on my lunatic heart 

Do all that can be done

To find what 'I' do behold

 

And whisper slowly in my ear 

Before a bigger question on our identity is here.

Poem, Confusion, Clarity,
