WHO AM I?

WHO AM I
Who am I
Who defines that
Who

Who

A question that’s plagued
me and you
in equal measure
Just who am I

I am
but a product
of the times we grew up in
Defined, ruled
by the invisible “others”

What will others say
What will they think
Spare a thought for that

Temper your actions
Curb your desire

Comply
Conform
Conditioned!
Continue down that set path

*
Until I woke up
and asked questions
To those who cared for me
Truly.
Asked questions
To those who had the answers.

“My” others
Not the other others
And My others
asked me
to ask myself:

Who am I

Encouraged me
to be me
for me
Always

To chart my own path
To discover the I
in me and myself

To be Shameless

And keep rediscovering as
Time and experience
Smoothen and burrow
my life

Deeper
Richer

If I am not true to myself
Who else will I be true with?
