Defined

     People who see me
See themselves
      or they don’t
      (see at all)
Vision is interpretation
       tainted by
           Understanding
         (or lack thereof)
  I am whatever I want
              to be
  Yet, I am whatever you
              WANT
                to
             believe
             (  too  )

  So many
    many
  many
    Feel lost or think they are
     
     I  S  O  L  A  T  E  D

      from the world around them
      from the people
      from family
      from friends

      Too angry to be apathetic.
      Too apathetic to be angry

  Yet    we     go     on

     Online Personas      
     You are what you type
     From your head to your hype

     If I don’t want to be me
     I can delete my character/

 ME FINE. (am I?)

     Look at me and SEE.
(What do you see? 
    I sorta need to know.)


 Isn’t that really what it’s about?
         Trying on new clothes?
      Change my hair color.
   Change the channel.
Break a mirror
            (or SE 7 EN)

 FIND something that resembles me.
  (not what I see, what I know)

 What do I know ? 
  Where do I look to find
                          M
                          E
                          ?
   How do I know what I find isn’t
     a cheap knockoff brand
       sold on the corner of
         Fifth and Main?
       You are what you consume
        From your death to the womb
             (is that dyslexic?)

                 DEFINED
          (Hi-Def no doubt, HD ME)
      There I am
      That collection of receipts.
           My life.
 (Sorry sir,
   we have a 30 day return policy.)
