who am i

Posted to Poetry




who am i?
who are we?
it’s impossible to define
at this moment in time
and will always be.
my name is just a label,
it doesn’t define me.
we can never know exactly who we are
because we change constantly.
why even try to figure it out
just keep doing and being
and the answer will show
as we reinvent ourselves each minute.
even as i sit idly around thinking of who
or better what i am, i’m changing so the
answer flits away from me just as i am about to grasp it.
i might as well stop trying to figure it out,
or just say i am me, the world, time, life and death
all wrapped up in a body.
