Who Am I?

I'am the son without the dad
I'am the boy who goes through the bad
I'am the guy who cant succeed in life
I'am the old man who has no wife
I'am the missing guy who can't be found
I'am the corpse underground
I'am the guy who everyone uses
I'am the man who has had many bruises
I'am the food left in the pot
I'am the dying man just here to rot.

    Son, don't know if you have ever heard about Jesus Christ... Only and only in him would you ever discover your true identity. Without Him, you will forever be a familiar stranger to yourself... Who Am I? - I am Christ's(1Corinthians 3: 23) (Report) Reply

    the journey within begins with the question 'who am i? ' and the answer keeps changing as one 'grows' and writing poetry is an inward journey! go on, young man! best, indira (Report) Reply

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
