What Am I? Who Am I©

What Am I? Who Am I©

The reflection in the mirror doesn’t answer the question “What Am I? Who Am I?

My mother turned away each time I raised the subject of where I came from

What is there to be proud of?

Why do I feel shame?

Being native is something to be proud of

There is no shame in who and what you are

I need answers

I want answers

I deserve answers

I just want to know who and what I am

Outside of this shell I call my own

The one that tells you about who I am

And where I came from

But you can’t know of me

Before I know of me

I’m determined to find the answers

Before life’s end

of

What Am I? and Who Am I?

It’s for me to know and you to find out!
