Personalities
I wish I were a dog.
I wish I were a cat.
Zebra.
Whale.
I wish I were a lion.
I wish I were an elephant.
Gazelle.
Hyena.
I wish I were something else.
Someone else.
Anything else.
I don’t know how to be me.
I don’t know how to be anything.
I should disappear, be what I know how to be.
Nothing.
Someone tell me who to be, then I won’t be myself, I will be who they want me to be.
Not me.
What am I?
Who am I?
Can’t I just be? Who will I become, when there is no longer myself inside?
Life is ridiculous, just leave me alone.
Roar.
Bubbles.
Bark.
Meow.
Cough.
Speech.
Language of the self that does not exist.
