Basically, this poem is asking the question: what makes us? Ourselves? The world? I just was typing earlier and made this up. I think all in all it means we are what we make of ourselves.

Correct?

Later, I wondered about my day...

I wondered, what was I to say?

If I were there now as I am here,

would I have spoken differently?

On my own.

Can and do I act differently infront of other's? For them?

Like a mask, to disguise... what? Myself? Absurd.

Although

I feel like I'm making my life,myself, up

But am I just living as I would?

I doubt I will ever know or understand

My thoughts, my queries, my life...

What I say, does it make sense?

I think it before I say it, I consider it to see if it's me

If it's what I would say...

But then, if this were true,

Would I be making 'myself' up as I go along

Am I truly myself with anyone but myself?

Even then am I in disguise?

The disguise I've made up to get through this life...

Then does it work... what I've made of myself?

Since we were born, do we all make up ourselves?

In our own indivdual perceptions of us or what we're suppose to be.

Peer pressure, or an urge, to be a human being, doing, saying-

saying what we're suppose to say...

Of course we'd be different. Really?

The question still begs.

Are we masks of ourselves, or are ourselves what we are?

To be us, is to be ourselves

For the sake of being alive. Here. Now.

Correct? or Nonsense.

End of this... yeah... not sure where I'm going either. I mean some of it makes sense but as a whole... nah. Heck, I'm not sure if this is a poem...
