Who I'm I if not this
Maybe the misconceptions you have don't fit
Perhaps I'm the one caught in an undoable cobweb
Or maybe I'm whatever you want me to be
But I know myself enough
To know that I'm nothing
Yet, just enough to be your everything

What does tomorrow mean on the eve of today
Because tomorrow is the world's biggest tease
It'll lead you on
And then laugh at you
Because it has come and gone

Where is the right path
If both are filled with shards of glass
And I'm being pushed forward
With hands too strong to resist

When will the sun stay out for a little longer
And the rains will leave me dry
Let me have clear thoughts under blue skies

Why do I often play the fool
Even though I know the game and the rules
And I know I have the losing hand
It's just sometimes it feels good to win before you lose

The author's comments:
This is just a combo of the who, what, where, when, why questions i ask myself sometimes

This is really good, I was actually playing with an idea like this earlier, but you have done it much better than I was going to. The first line doesn't make sense, but otherwise, AMAZING! I love it!
