Who Am I

Whose words do I quote but mine?
Whose intentions fill my mind, and
Whose meanings fill my heart?
Whose interests pull me to indulge?
Whose dreams do I follow,
Whose thoughts follow those dreams?
Mine
Then who am I when they are no longer mine?
A lifeless puppet
Following the crowd
An empty soul
For someone else to fill
A life with no meaning
To mean,
To know,
To love,
I must quote my own words
Intend what I intend, and
Mean what I mean
I must indulge my interests
Follow my dreams
And let my thoughts chase after them
I must know
Who I am

I really don't understand how this poem hasn't been recognized yet. I can tell it relates to a lot of peoples lives including my own. To me it's not fake at all, if you write what's on your mind it can never be fake. This is wonderful please keep writing :D.
