Silly nonsense, again

It appears to me

that I appear to be

not who I really am.

You see decided long ago

that I would be this man,

so being who I am

makes me quite aware

that who I am is not what you see

so why do sit and stare?

Is it because

you think I am

someone that you know?

or is that who I am

is not the who I planned>

perhaps this being

who I am

has altered everything

making me what you see

which is annoying

because

I am who I am.

I don't think anyone can really 'know' anyone. We like to think we do, but I think the truth is... we chose the person we wish to present to the world. I doubt there is a true self... only a soul that is in constant flux... always choosing and always changing.

Goodness, how do you ever remember it all. I am what I am, no more, no less....

Be always safe,
Karen
