who was i
before

i became who i am

before i was
what i was
was i an i am

then agin
i was what i was
i was before
i guess
i was the same
as i am

but then agin,
i ain't the same i as i was
or am i
maybe
i be
the i that i was
before
i became me
who knows
not me
nor i

so why do i try
to be i
or me
can you see?

who was i
before i was me
a question
a suggestion
can you see?
