It is possible that I am

Everything

You think I am

A usurper

An oppressor

Ignorant

Of your history and of your ways and of your beauty

Dismissive

Of your gained resilience and your natural brilliance

Uncomprehending

Of the whole that is you

 

It is possible that I am

Nothing

You think I am

Not confident

Not opulent

Not swaddled in memories of mother’s pearls and college thrills

Not comforted by an innate sense of security and safety

Not whole

Not yet

 

It is possible that I am

A mixed bag

A jumble

Of greatness

And total shit

A person

But you won’t know

Until you know

Me
