Who Am I but a Reflection?

A poem on the puzzle of identity.

Who am I, but a reflection
Of the world around me
A product of my experiences
And the choices I make

Who am I, but a collection
Of thoughts and feelings
A mix of joy and sorrow
A blend of hope and fear

Who am I, but a canvas
On which life paints its colors
A tapestry of memories
And the lessons I’ve learned

Who am I, but a puzzle
Pieced together, one by one
A unique combination
Of all that I am and all that I will be

Who am I, but me
A complex and ever-evolving being
A work in progress, always growing
Always learning, always becoming.
