Who am I?
    #446249 - 07/14/10 01:34 PM (6 years, 4 months ago)

My eye hurts.
A terrible sting.
Oh my.
What is this thing?

I go to the mirror
To look at my eye
But as I get there
I ask myself “why?”

But I look in the mirror.
Only to see
A black hole in my eye
Engulfing everything.

My name fades first.
Who am I now?
I can be myself
Without my name anyhow.

Next fades my work
The work that I do.
My work doesn’t make me.
Work isn’t what separates me from you.

Next faded my family.
Then went my friends.
Sad, but okay.
Because I am not them.

Next went my pleasures.
The things that make me feel high
But I am not them.
They do not make me- I.

Than went my sad.
My guilt, hate, and pain.
Such a relief!
They are not me, they are quite vain.

But what makes me who I am?
I am not my name, my work, my pleasure or pain.
I am not other people.
But what makes me not the same?

Next my legs went away
Into the black abyss.
But am I my legs?
My legs I will not miss.

Next went my arms
My arms, they just disappeared.
What do arms do?
They don’t make me different, special, or weird.

Next went my body
My torso, stomach, and hips.
But I am not them.
Them I will not miss.

Then went my face
And also my neck
But am I still me
Without a face for people to see.

The only thing left was my brain
Was that all I was, this pink hunk of flesh?
Chemicals and signals
Are all that is left

Who am I?
Can I be just my brain?
what makes it “mine”? Who owns my brain?
Who is this “my”? Have I gone insane?

If all that I am is my brain, what is left of me to be “my”?
What happens to me when my brain turns to dust?
Am I conscious or just a chemical rush?
Who am I? Maybe I am just.
