Who am I ?

Am I just another worthless human?

Or am I a lonely dark sky?

Am I a broken constellation?

Or am I a meteor close by?

Am I another incomplete story?

Or am I just a half torn page?

Am I someone with a painful history?

Or am I a tiny bird locked in a cage?

Am I another forgotten myth?

Or am I a forever living legend?

Am I the king from Macbeth?

Or the Queen that Hamlet threatened?

Am I the guilt everyone tries to justify?

The justice that the world blames?

Or am I the earth who’s burning in flames?

The question still remains, who am I ?
