Just a beginning poet who wants to share her work.
“Are You Okay?” Who am I? Who are you? Who are we? We… Us… Me… I. I don't know who I am. I don't know who you are. I don't know who we are. Are… Were… Am. Am I me? Am I you? Am I we, us, them? Them too. Too many thoughts whirling in my mind. Mind’s infected. Infections of madness consuming me. Me… Us… We… I. I thought I knew who I was. I thought I knew who you were. I thought I knew who we were. Were… Was… When. When did I lose myself? When did you lose yourself? When did we lose ourselves? Self. Self image. Selfish. Self loathing. Self love. Self esteem. Self confidence. Self mutilation. No Self control. Control. Controlled. Controlling. Controlling my thoughts. Thoughts fighting. Fighting to win. Winning, but losing. Losing me. Me… Us… We… I. I don't know who… Who you are. Who we were. Who I was. Who I wasn't. Wasn’t I me? Wasn't I? I. You. We. I am not me. You are not you. We are not us. We are gone. You are gone. I am gone. I am! I… I am! I am not! I am not Okay! Not okay Still not okay. Okay?
