who am i

what am i

who am i

someone please tell me what to do

but don't tell me too much

i don't want to be like you

i listen too much think too much am quiet too much

i can't even write a poem right

what is my style

who am i

someone help me learn to write

but don't help me too much

i don't want to be like you

discover yourself they say

listen to your heart they say

what do i want

who am i

add a simile hyperbole metaphor make it interesting they urge

this makes no sense start over they squint

i thought i was supposed to listen to my heart

write from the heart

someone explain to me

but don't explain too much

i don't want to know what you know

what is this meaning

who am i

I am myself that is it
