You are the only one of your kind
There is only one "your name here"
For the closest thing to you (a clone)
Cannot be you for you are you alone
And if you happen to have a twin
They are not you, they're only akin
You are the last you on Earth
You've been the final you ever since birth
And if anyone says there's two of you
That's obviously definitely not very true

I agree - you could do a lot with this idea, but you stick to the surface of the idea that you're the only one. discuss the clone, the feeling of being yourself - put in some interesting images and comparisons, and you could have a great poem. :)

An interesting poem, but nevertheless holds not much else other than the depth declared in your rhyming verses.

Like your title. That's only icing on the cake though.
