I must be brutally honest with myself... but who am I to be brutally honest to, if I am not even sure of who I am?

I must be brutally honest with

myself.

If I will not be, then who will?

 

Certainly the world would,

but I should prepare myself,

for the things they may say now.

To avoid heartbreak later.

 

For my past self, and future

self, and present self alike, I

should like to know who I am.

 

The age long question

plaguing youths and adults

alike.

 

The question that keeps

adolescents and teens

awake till dawn.

 

The question of who am I

that aids in who I will

become.

 

And comes the saddest line

of all in response.

 

A line that suggests idiocism.

 

A line that suggests

indecisiveness.

 

A line that is uttered every

second from millions of

people around the world.

 

I don’t know.

 

I could not be entirely sure as

to exactly who I am.

 

I can only answer as to what

I like.

 

But it makes me wonder, is it

just as important to know

what I don’t want, as it is to

know what I do?

 

Sure, the vise versa could

narrow things down.

 

But come again that

wretched statement:

 

I don’t know.
