A Poem by ktim

I look in the the mirror each and every day,
ask myself that same question before I walk away.
Nobody answers, the mystery stays the same.
As a child I asked who am I anyway?
I still ask who am I to this day.
My mind feels like a maze swallowed by decay,
the happiness I felt as a child has completely gone away.
I ask the shadows if they know my name,
I wanna know my name today.
I'm asking who am I anyway?
I walk down the street and everybody looks away,
it's like they sense inside i'm really not ok.
These monsters eat at me everyday.
Who am I anyway?
Why am I not ok?
These voices claim i'm somebody different everyday,
one day me, the next who am I anyway?
Why am I cursed to live this way,
am I a child gone insane?
thats why I look in the mirror each day,
to beg the voices please go away.
Who are you anyway?
Who I on this day?
Who are we anyway?

Do not look in the mirror! Please! I know why someone tries to find answers looking in the mirror! I know it very well! It is scary! It is crazy! Please don’t!
