If I were Me

Today dear reader, I am not feeling it. I have not felt like writing today, and I think it shows in today's work. We were prompted to answer the questions 'If I were Me?', and that ended up being the title to the poem. I am not happy with my piece today. But maybe if I was me, I might like it more. Thanks for being with me on this journey so far.

If I were me;
authentic, real.
What would I be?
Who would I see?

I swear I don’t know
who I pretend I am.
A stranger in my own mind,
an intruder in my own

Am I being myself?
Who am I?

I am resigned to the fact
that this is me.
Never the same.

So this is what I see
when I look inside.
It is the question I ask
if I were me.
