Ulterior Fear of Oneself

Do you ever frighten yourself?
Have you ever felt
like the person you were
up and left
unexpectedly?
Replaced with something
that even you fail
to recognize.
Its a struggle,
learning to manage
what was once
not there.
It's hard enough
trying to understand
the world around you,
harder still, when you cannot make sense
of yourself
We pass hundreds of people daily,
not knowing,
yet we only need look
inside ourselves
for unfamiliar territory...

i think this poem is raw and beautiful. it shows someone's inward stuggle, hidden war, self-conflict. i applaud the author.
