Code Unknown

I take my photo,

Posed and intense,

But I don’t recognize myself in there.

I don’t see myself anywhere.

Aimless and dizzy,

This world feels cold

Like there’s no space for me.

I don’t know if there ever will be.

I talk out loud when I’m alone

Hoping to shake loose

Some part that resonates,

As a trait I can place.

How do you know how to begin

When you can’t say who you are?

What you stand for, what you like-

These are necessary to live your life.
