Entry - MAG Poetry Prize 2011


by Nadia Meksem

What is my identity?
Am I loud?
Talking to others and being able to
Am I shy?
Not being able to put words together
in a conversation
Am I a bully?
Hurting feelings of others
Swearing and backbiting
Violating properties
Am I truthful?
Speaking out the truth no matter how
hard it may seem
Am I bubbly?
Making others laugh and standing out
in a crowd
Am I confused?
Not knowing exactly who I am
The question I ask again is
What is my identity?
The truth lies in the heart
