I am a complex chemical reaction.

I am a son of Erin.

I am a renegade.

I am as immortal as my actions make me.

I am circling the fire from a distance.

I am waiting.

I am still waiting.

I am tired of waiting.

I am dynamic, changing once you have studied me.

I am the same person I was yesterday.

I am going to be walking when everything else falls to rubble around me.

I am fascinated by the glaring, often ignored contradictions in human society.

I am a contradiction myself.

I am training for what is to come.

I am incalculable.

I am mystery unraveling, to an end unknown.

I am not surprised easily.

I am a product of the tribulations of those faded into legend.

I am certain of what must be done.

I am uncertain of the future.

I am conflicted.

I am constantly questioning my sincerity.

I am just outside your view.

I am my own author.

I am culpable and I don't want to be, but not for the reasons you think.

I am not fond of cliches.
