How darkness flows into some ages.

into those ages when

and the shy.

to ebb and flow continuously,

"Who am I, who am I, who am I?"


in an effort to fit,


is the elephant in the room

swaying from side to side.


within the mind

far less shy.

even loader,

"Who am I, who am I, who am I?"

Nice Writing ?

This was a very well written poem. What I like about the first stanza is that the question arises 'Who am I' which I interpret as someone trying to figure out who they are, what they like, their hobbies, themselves. And I also like how 'Who am I' repeats three times, it sounds very poetic. 'Fitting is not the problem noted' I think strengthens the poem's message that people should be themselves. I'm different than a lot of people too, so I can relate to this poem. I enjoyed reading this, JE! Thanks for sharing! I've got to add this to my shelf.

unmasked delusions

This one is very haunting, especially with those repeating lines "who am I". Really makes you think; nice work.

very simple but well written yet in my point of view darkness has no age to flow, sadly, I've been into it for too long now

Thank you, I do pay attention to feed-back. --- This was one of my philosophical moments. This started out to be a much longer poem, but edit I did. --- Have a great new year...
