"Yourself"- poem

Do you even remember
who you are?
are you still
who you used to be?
but who’s “yourself”, anyway?
have you ever known?

It’s not the you
who struggles
to impress the ones
who aren’t even impressive.

It’s not the you
who fakes smiles
to pretend you’re alive
in your own cage.

It’s not the you
who laughs to jokes
about your very own

It’s you,
the one who lives
not the one
who fakes them.

      (“Yourself”, Anne Maria)
