Identity - Poem by vicky saladino


What is my identity today
A maker of cookies
Or a maker of poetry
A kind hearted citizen
Or a master of treachery
Who is it I see
When I look in the mirror
Have to capture myself
For a hidden agenda
If we wake up from a bad dream
With heart pounding sweat
Are we sure it's still us
Are you willing to bet
We believe we are good
But deep down inside
Lye's something else
Something we need to hide
Who are you… who are you today
Are you really sure
Could you truly say
I have some doubts
Over my own thoughts
Wondering why…why they're that way
The dark is a place
That I lay awake
Thinking that maybe it's all a mistake
If only I could turn this around
Generate something good…maybe meditate
All the while confusion sets in
Keep trying to forget
Just where I have been
Don't think I'm alone
In this demented state
Mankind is crumbling
We'll just have to wait
So many years I've lived with my mind
Don't know where I put it
Sometimes it's so..Very hard to find
