A Poem by Bryan

A reflection on myself...

Who is me?
Who is this character?
I act like many 
Yet I am one
I do not know
Which is real
One or the other
The contrast is unclear
I do not know myself
No one knows me
Who am I?
What am I?

This was really good! It brought into my mind the image of standing in the center of a room and all around are versions of the self, going about their different day to day activities. In the center, the true person keeps looking around, wondering if any of them are the real he, or if he is the real one, of perhaps none, or all.

Awesome ink!

Honestly. I don't write poetry like this. Totally unchartered territory here.

Self reflective pieces are always the best, however.

I act like many
Yet I am one

Something we all go through, bit having it writtn just brings a whole new truth to it.
I liked this.

this gave me the chills because it was so well written! it was short and sweet but in a good way because each word you could tell held so much information

I tend to think we paint who we are differently every day that we are alive. Since we are always growing and evolving, changing and adapting, it would make sense that the best answer to this poems question is... you are you.... just as I am I... We simply are who we are in the now. =)
Nice poem!

But i liked it.

The first line would have been better if it said "Who am I?" instead of "Who is me?"

To repeat a previous comment, beautiful and oh so relatable. I actually like the starkness. It's a verry confronting question.

Posted 7 Years Ago

This is really lovely, quite relatable actually.
Maybe you could add more depth and detail.
