Who Are You?
I am not a writer, but I am a person who can write
I am not a lover, but I am a person who can love
I am not a killer, but I am a person who can kill
The point is,
I am not many things, but there are many things I can do
What I do does not make me what I am
What I am is not dictated by what I do
Out of the many things I do indeed do
I do not do them all of the time at any given moment
Out of the things I don’t do
I do in fact do some of them some of the time
Even when I don’t want to or mean to
To say I have the constitution of a fortress would be a lie
Because I have lied, I have stolen, I have cheated, been violent, have coveted, and broken every one of the Ten Commandments in some form or another
I have exhibited all of the Seven Deadly Sins at some form in my life
I have been greedy, wrathful, proud, lustful, slothful, envious, gluttonous
That does not make me who I am
Who I am…
Who am I…?
I am nobody
I don’t possess any extraordinary feat of strength, or mind
My memory isn’t finely honed
I have no special abilities
I am not stupid, however
But I am not as important as I think I am
And many lives have existed without my being there
Therefore I am not needed
If anything I need them more than they need me
So I ask again, Who are you?
Who am I?
I am nobody
