Who Are You
I'm losing my house, I don't really care
There's worse things in life than a couch or a chair
I'm losing my life, it's been lost before
I lived through it then, why not once more?
I'm losing my cash, I got my degree
The market is full, there's no room for me
I'm forgotten by joy, but what else is new
It'll take more than that to run me through
The world will fade, I'll be in the dirt
Before I'm too old, I'll finally not hurt
Before I am gone, I've got this to say
There's not a person to take pride away
Other than yourself, other than your mind
If you look inside, who will you find?
------- Author's Notes -------
This is probably one of my first attempts at a more "abstract" poem... Be gentle.

Hey Seizure! Of course, I'll be gentle, delicate, and nice when critiquing your work! You're the brain, the mastermind; you write with such intellect! Who are you? makes me thing about a reflection. I can visualize someone standing in front of the mirror, trying to discover who they REALLY are. Unpeeling the skin, and looking DEEP within themselves, to see their heart!

This was wonderful! Not at all like the others. I like this new style of yours, the old one was great too but this one is new and unexplored! AMAZING!
