Identity

If I told you my name,
If I gave you my trust,
To keep my secret,
To know who I am.

I am no one,
I am someone,
I know all,
I know none.

If I whispered in your ear,
Told you who I was,
If I revealed my secrets,
Would you be surprised?

My life doesn't matter,
It never did,
Never in the face,
The face of the world.

My name won't be remembered,
Like all those famous men,
But I can still give you,
A small part of me.

I can't tell you,
Tell you who i am,
The world is full of thieves,
That will steal my identity.
