Hi - Poem by Alim Lamont
Before I say goodbye,
Who am I?
When I see me in an old picture I see someone else.
Even the eyes in which my memories are viewed from are not that of my own.
I am not the man you last spoke to.
I am not the man who woke up this morning.
I am not even the same man who started this poem.
So who am I?
Who I am is change.
I am adapting.
I am always new.
I am the new that I choose.
The same me that is to you is not to them.
I'm like a breath on the wall fading to be replaced by another.
The amount of people I've been and will be is enough to overwhelm infinity.
Like all, I was once a blank canvas, now I'm art.
Some get me, some don't, yet.
This piece of who I am, is different from all angles.
Someone new and someone old.
Oh, I what I'm trying to say is,
