Who am I?

By: Christy Wisdom


FREE WRITING

look at me
tell me who i am
tell me who i can be
because i don't know
who this person,
this one in the mirror,
is
anymore,
because it's 
certainly
not
me.


this-
this stranger
this doppelganger
can't be me
can it?
surely i'm not this person
i don't have those 
half-moons
under my eyes
my shoulders aren't
slumped
and my cheeks
are not wet
with these tears.

no.
who is this person?
this one i'm staring at
because it's not
me. 

it's not like me to 
cry
like this
it's not my way of 
dealing
with things
or is it?

is it?

i think,
i think
maybe
i don't know
who
i am 
anymore. 

This is not how I actually feel right now, just another exploration of emotion... 

Peer Review

I really loved how you said it was unlike you. This differs so much from what other writers have said. They know they are depressed and this piece is so great because you realize some people become depressed and aren't born that way.


I think that the way it is, is just fine and nothing more is needed.


Reviewer Comments

I really loved this piece. It was so beautiful and reminded me of myself.
