Poem: I am what I am

I am what I am
That's why I am me
Sometimes I am you
Sometimes I am she

Today I am the one
Who sees things a certain way
Today I am dark as the night
Tomorrow I am the day

When I was with you
I was, who I believe I am
The way I am with another
Is also me I claim

It is not my intention to lie
I am simply more than one thing
I am what I experience
I am what I believe in

I live in the moment for I
Have not seen tomorrow
But in every moment I own
I am me down to my marrow

I don't mean to mislead
Nor am I schizophrenic
Its not a disease, its a quirk
Part systemic, part endemic

I am not one but all
Accept it, let it be
For I am what I am
That's why I am me
