Who am I?
Am I?

In five hundred years time, most of us will be forgotten dust. But Hitler will still be remembered, God loves irony.

Its an honest question
Viper, be nice. This is a very short to the point poem that begs to be answered. There are so many things a person can be - young angst simply oozes from this poem.

To woo
The important point it makes is that people read too much into poems that have been created in 30 seconds trying to be clever without putting the work in.

Thanks, everyone
for your comments. Viper - good answer, in the same way I am puzzled by the concept of self - you are puzzled by the concept of caring. Demure, yep, I ask an honest question about my identity, I'm 47, feel to have achieved little other than gaining good friends (that's you lot) on and off this website and a loyal wife, maybe that's enough, but I'm still looking for a definite answer. Steve, how right you are about pretention, esp. in some artists and their (cough) disciples. Don't worry, Raven, I'm never far from cheerfulness. Check out my 'Pretentious Poet' poem for proof positive.

That's Enough
I'm still soul searching myself. Although I believe there isn't a grand plan or major point in life. This isn't as depressing as it sounds, it just means enjoy the moment. With good friends and a loyal wife, it seems you may be in a better position than some, and have moments to cherish. There are plenty of soul serachers, Descartes being the one that springs to mind. It sounds like you're doing a lot of it, and I'd like to see it in your poetry, as I felt this one was a little too simple, summarising what many feel at some point in their lives.

Good luck
