Identity Theft (New Poem)

Who are you?

Under the clothes?

Under the lies?

Under the mask?

Beneath the disguise?

If your soul could be scanned

How much would you ring up to be?

Your bar code has been changed so many times

It would be difficult for anyone to see

Blaming others for your mental, spiritual and physical bankruptcy

But no, it was you who overspent

On people, time, places and spaces

That only diminished your worth

This is not a case of stolen identity

This is the result of failure to

Tap into the remedy of a better

Me, she, he and we

No forced entry

Because the latch to the lock was unhitched

This is not a case of stolen identity

But one that is a reflection

Of your own worst enemy….yourself

So again, I ask….who are you?

Are you taking charge of your life

Or blaming it on being a victim of

Identity theft?
