Who Am I?

Who am I?

Well, it’s funny you should ask, because honestly

I haven’t got a clue.

Every day I’m

bombarded by people telling me to be myself

but how am I supposed to do that when

I’m not sure who this “self” is

that they want me to be.

I like to think that everyone is unique and original

but nothing is really original.

I mean, everything is pretty much

a remix

a mixtape

a collage

and our minds are the bulletin boards we pin these ideas to,

taking some things off when they’re no longer relevant

and

adding new things as we see fit.

And our board is ever changing,

like our minds

like our souls

because everything we think

everything we encounter

everything we experience

everything we believe

remember

forget

create

destroy

perceive

like

dislike

feel

everything that goes up on our bulletin board of a mind

is who we are.
