Who Am I today?

By Anthony John Ward

PROMPT — Who am I today?

Who am I today?

The same person as yesterday-

Except better?

But the day before yesterday, I was worse,

And worse still the day before that.

Last year I felt different to how I feel now,

Although I'm very much the same person I was when I was little,

The same fears, the same hang ups,

Still doing the things I don't do.

Feeling sentimental without really knowing how I felt at the time,

Was I not full of remorse for myself and angry at the world,

Wearing myself out, as anxious as I am now?

Who will I be tomorrow?

The same person as today,

For better or worse,

As I was yesterday.


Anthony John Ward tends to fidget with his thoughts in the hope of laying them to rest. He has managed to lay them in a number of establishments, including Shot Glass Journal, Jerry Jazz Musician, Literary Yard, The Metaworker, and New Note Poetry. Anthony writes from Durham, England.
