Who Am I?

Try so very hard to be me
The one you think that you know
A persona imagined passively
Minor differences in take
Patterns in my speech
It’s not about the things you make
But about the who that you are
And doesn’t that vary, be wary
I can be anyone I want to be
I can be anyone that you want to see
Image is like clothing for the ego
Nothing is certain in make believe
Nothing has real solidity
Floating variations in psyche
Revolving interpretations inside me
I project and you receive
But the me that I want to be
May not be the one that you perceive
Am I real then?
And are you?
Imagined shadows hurtling
Through some forgotten plane
Like some silly
Computer game
I digress
A kernel of truth
Remains aloof
My higher self.
