Who Am I

I don't know who i am
i don't know my personality
i don't know myself
i've never known myself
i don't think i will ever know myself
poeple say you have to know yourself
you have to love yourself
you have to be in control of who you are
i don't have that
i don't really love myself
all i know is my name
that i'm lazy
that i'm shy
is that knowing yourself
not to me
that's just something thats apart of me
not who i am
i don't know what i'm going to be doing
i don't know what i'm going to say next
and i like that
i like not knowing
i like being able to not figure myself out
it keeps me away from the edge
the edge i don't want to fall over
the further away from the edge
the further away from knowing myself the better
100 miles away from knowing myself is too close
i'm a good distance right now
and i want to keep it that way
who am i
your asking the wrong person.

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
