Who Are You? - Poem by Charlie F. Kane

So, who are you?
Who are you today?
What kind of mood
Are you in today?
Angry? Feeling dissident
Towards society and
The people in it?
Creative? Feeling like
A poet today?
Will you sit down and
Write your troubles today?
So please tell me,
Who are you?
Who are you today?

Perhaps the musician today?
Feeling like a rock star?
Jamming your thoughts away,
Thinking about your next album,
Hating anyone in the way?
No, perhaps today you are
The scholar, you’ll sit down
And sit and study.
Maybe enlighten us with
Your knowledge.
Please, who are you?
Because I really need to know.

Are you the lover today?
Brooding over some girl
Who probably doesn’t even
Know your name?
No, you look like the traveller today,
As in your mind you’re travelling
A million miles from here.
So, who are you?
Who are you feeling like today?
Please, not the evangelistic today,
“The world is going to Hell,
And what are you going to do? ”
I don’t know, how about you?
So not him today.
Maybe the philosopher instead,
Sitting and thinking
About life and such other
Related occupations.
Who are you today?

So come on,
Who are you today?
I really want to know.
So you’re the passenger today?
Sitting down,
Enjoying the view
And smiling at the scenery.
Good enough,
Let’s go.
