Share Everything – Written October 2001 (Aged 26)

Share Everything

to share everything
to help you understand
its difficult, always…
because i do not know who i am
i have looked at the evidence
and i have studied the maps
but my life has no definite path
not one that i can track
it is difficult,
but you see more than most
perhaps i just do not see it
perhaps because it is too close
some bits of my life are unbelievable
some moments seem like glory
feats which were once unachievable
yet, so suddenly achieved
it is difficult,
to share everything
because, to be honest, i forget myself
i know that sometimes i was on the floor
and sometimes just on the shelf
