Who am I, what do I want?

Who am I, what do I want?

A Chapter by The Reverend, S. D. Blankenship DD. Ph. D.

Who am I?

What do I want?!

I wish I knew.

And this too.

I am alone

I am skin on bone

If you knew me, please let me know

If not, I’m sorry, I will just let you go.

Who am I?

What do I want?!

I feel so sad, for no one knows

I am this breaking in stones

I have wrinkles on my face

I have myself crying in place.

Nothing will come to my mind

Am I just lost, forgotten in time?

My memory fades with pain.

Let me wish I was more sane.

Please let me ask, just once more.

Then you may leave, walk out the door.

Who are you?

What do you think I want.

I really liked the flow of this poem people often wonder what there peers think of them so the question who are you what do you think I want makes me want to review myself I liked the way That if you knew someone you want them to let you know and if not then they are a mere distraction A very well written piece of poetry

"My memory fades with pain.
Let me wish I was more sane."

This reminds me of so many people I know, and of myself. Those two lines repeated in my mind over and over again. I absolutely loved this poem. Can't wait for the rest!

"Who am I?
What do I want?! "
A family friend killed himself last week. He was a kid to me. He was 38 year old. Big and strong. The questions of who he was and what did he want is being asked too late. The poem ask good question and the description open the doors to much thoughts. A outstanding poem. Thank you.

I love the flow of your words and how your rhymes feel so creative and not just forced. You interest me with things that come from your mind and I looked forward to reading more. :)

Great poem! Lots of people seem to look down on others because they think there better, and leaves the person whom there looking down on wonder who they are and what they want!

Another great poem. I think of identity crisis when I read this, or just someone unsure of who they are at a certain point in their life. Or maybe I'm reading it all wrong, lol. I liked it, though. :)
