I Am I Am Not



Wherever I am I am not here.
Whatever I am I am not this.
Whoever I am I am not me.
The world may be an illusion,
but I certainly am.
Time may be a misunderstanding,
but I definitely am.
Whether I am or not I am not what I seem.
To myself, much less to others.
I can't trust how I know,
much less what.
What I thought made no difference.
No one will remember what I said.
I am too small and way too large to be real.
