Poem by Daisha Torain
Observing and questioning the outside will leave you seeking more searching more reaching for the internal door
Mid exploration your focus shifts
To something like
What the fuck am I doing here?
Wondering if I’m asking the right questions to get the right answers
Whatever those “right” answers are
Questions like Who am I?
In these shoes
On this concrete
On this street
In this intersection
In this city
In this state
In this country
On this planet
In solar system
In this galaxy
In this universe
In this dimension
On this plane
My brain is the lenses with the most optimal HD zoom
Wait who am I?
Something special I presume
Heyy to the one that burrows within
that hears and experiences alI that I do
It’s a simple question right?
Who is the person on the inside that makes up the outside
When you cry on the outside what’s going on with the you that’s inside?
Still echoing the words who am I?
in this seemingly infinite space with endless corridors
When seeking answers to this question I’m speaking to the essence
If you have the ears to listen to your essence she speaks
While deciding and discovering who I am
I want to leave mark
Not a carbon foot print
But leaving something with benefit
This world is going to shit but I still want to make an impression
My future is unlimited
My generations will thrive
With love knowledge and wealth
My personal desire is for my people to prosper as long as the earth lives
Who am I?
We are me and me is you
If you know then you know
