    dotsI Am Infinite Voices, But Which Is Me?dots
    -------------------------------------------


    To lie to yourself...
    "Who am I?"
    To ask a simply question
    With an unsimple answer...

    I am many voices,
    Infinite by nature,
    Solitary by want,
    And curious by need.

    Yet am I one voice
    In a multitude,
    Or a deluge of a thousand screams.

    The voices speak
    To me, inside.
    The voices speak
    From me, outside.

    Which, if one
    Am I...

    Or perhaps
    I am not I,
    Rather
    We, Them, They, or Us.

    The latter thought
    Frightens me
    Because I want to be
    A Me
    Not a They
    But a He.

    Yet I am a cauldron
    Of endless gibberish
    I understand.

    Violet speaks to me,
    Violet speaks through me.

    The Scarecrow speaks to me,
    The Scarecrow speaks through me.

    So who is who.

    Is it so wrong to wonder?
    Will it be so wrong to hate ourselves
    When We find there is no
    Me?

    Or will Hope spring eternally
    An answer,
    A truth,
    Not painful?

      Wow. Once again, wow. I feel like I say that every time, but I really like this one.

    "I am many voices,
    Infinite by nature,
    Solitary by want,
    And curious by need.

    Yet am I one voice
    In a multitude,
    Or a deluge of a thousand screams."

    I think that this is just a perfect summary of how everyone feels at times and it just makes me happy. Definately a favorite.

      I liked this poem and the deep thought in it as well as the thought-provoking questions it presents. We are all many things to many people. The complexities of personalities makes for interesting poetry. I look forward to reading more of your work. :-) Sharon
