An Identity


I had one once -
an identity
having one meant
the world to me -
an identity
before it was
taken from me
i knew who i
was and who
i'd become
without it I
was no one -
lost identity
i no longer
understood
understood the
meaning of life
i need it back -
my identity

    With an identity you can readily Identify with who you are.

    One without an identity is like one not having an imagination

    That would be a very somber feel to experience.

    Nicely done I can really relate to this one (Report) Reply

    To know your real identity from day one but if through time one travels the long path of life and notices that things have really changed and one sees himself or herself in the mirror and surprisingly see a distorted mirror, then it is time to think and make changes to get back the original identity! This philosophy inspired me to write two poems titled: A CARBON COPE and WHO AM I? which I hope you can read and enjoy whenever time permits! As your write, is a well penned, poignant and reflective. A thought provoking write that caught my immediate attention! 10+++ Keep inspiring the World! Love and Peace for always! ... (Report) Reply

    Good poem by you that has deep meaning along with fine expression and nice selection of words. The identity of a man is very valuable and necessary for his belonging. (Report) Reply

    The awareness that identity is needed itself is an Identity. The needed and desired identity follows and envelops the individual. (Report) Reply

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
