Who Am I
13 October, 2002
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Lost in the what I should be
Forgotten is who I am
Absorbed by emotional vampires
Gone is the very soul

Didn't I use to be somebody
Before I was mommy and wife
Wasn't I a rebel
Wasn't I alive

Who is this person I see now
Gazing at me in the mirror
Am I the person I was destined to be
Or somebody else's lie

Maybe Someday I will remember
And find the life-force that was me
Until then I guess I'll play puppet
Being whoever it is I can still be

something lost

I feel that something lost in my name of my inner reflection and try to backtrack in my mind

I'm only 16 years old but i often get scared that if and when i get married that i will end up this way. Your poem put my very thoughts into words.
