"So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." - J.R.R. Tolkien


Who am I?
The person I was,
The person I am,
Or the person I will be?

Do I live in memories,
Seeing the past before my eyes,
A video of the mind,
Feeling what was once felt?

Do I live in the moment,
Never letting a second go by
Without feeling its joy,
Before becoming a part of the past?

Do I live in dreams
Trying to see what awaits me,
Planning the days to come,
And waiting, always waiting?

Do I live in the day that past,
The night of now,
Or the dawn to break?

Who am I?
