I am Me-a

Mon, 11/02/2015 - 11:31 -- miaibee

Who am I?

possibly the hardest question because there are infinitely many answers

answers that may contradict because I am not simple

then I realize I am not an answer

there shouldn't be a question, "Who am I?"

figure me out like a puzzle

many pieces like the many definitions


page 465 they say

but look at it

4 lines of words: noun

seventeen years refined into four lines

nothing is impossible except defining a person

I am me, but that isn't my answer

who am I?

I can't tell if you want me to start with the forgotten memories of day one

or the first ten adjectives that roll off my tongue

my name is shared with seven other people, Google says

but we aren't the same

define that

please, because I can't

can't shorten such circumstances, cannot simply subtract the seventeen summers and seventeen years 

into four lines

the word dog gets more than that

and there are things Webster doesn't know

things I don't even know

and so who am I?

those words haven't been added to the dictionary yet

because I can't be defined

but once they are, the answer to "Who am I?" won't be a single word
