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

    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

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

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —

For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
