Who I Am

I’ve always rejected being understood. To be understood is to prostitute oneself. I prefer to be taken seriously for what I’m not, remaining humanly unknown, with naturalness and all due respect.

Author:  Fernando Pessoa

Why would you want to know who I am? The face behind the screen, the fingers dancing across the keys, the heart from which these words flow–what business do you have with me? We all interact through the clever mask which the internet provides. We all place a hollow trust in one’s profile image while choosing the best for our own. So what’s the point? Are you here to judge, deride, point, laugh, comment, or just curious?

My words are the only evidence many of you will have that I exist. You may hear my soft voice through a poem, see my warming smile through an encouraging comment, or feel the warm tears I shed for humanity.

To prove my humanity: I like hot-pockets, Dr. Pepper, Adam Lambert, Doctor Who, and rainy days. Where I go my tablet goeth. Cut me open and I will bleed music. Crimson is my favorite color.

  1. LOL Good, now that I know that you like Dr Pepper and rainy days and the rest I’d like to thank you for the follow on my blog! Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian… Pictures, on the other hand, have no language barriers ;-)
    Keep up the good work.

      • LULZ!! You aren’t the first person to think that…most people don’t believe me when I tell them I’m a sophomore in college!

        But I’ve noticed many, MANY teens using WP as a ranting zone. Some rants are just pure annoying, but usually what they write is sensible…and relate-able!

      • It’s because your written expression is so advanced ;) hahah I love how eveyone on here has the same interests in writing though! Like we’re basically all going through the same things, but in different countries and different viewpoints on them! Well, that’s one of my favourite parts of using WordPress :D
