Who am I?

Not my weaknesses or strengths, nor all the cravings that I chase.

Who am I?

not my money
not my job
not my country
not my god
not my existential crisis cries
that tell me i’m a fraud.

not my failures
not my dreams
not my habits
not my genes
not the thoughts that crowd my head
nor all the things I think they mean.

not my gender
not my race
not my family
not my face
not my weaknesses or strengths
nor all the cravings that I chase.

not my species
not my time
not my planet
not my mind
not the moral code inside
I feel is keeping me in line.

not the future
not the past
I’m not the first
and not the last
I’m not the answer to a question
any person’s thought to ask,

as i’m the mystery of life,
so who I am will stay concealed,
until my journey comes to end,

and I stop writing all this
