Also None

Also None

I can be accused
and not become.
Feel guilt
when had not done.
Feel sadness and happiness
that are not mine.
Feel sadness and happiness
that are mine
but not me.
Just passing through.

I can drift
and not swim.
I can swim
and not fight.
I can fight
and not die.
I can die
and not live.

I can be wrong
I know.
But I’ve been right
also.
With what I knew
at the time.

But if there had been something
I had not known
at the time I was
right
perhaps I was
wrong.
Even then.
Even now.

I can be boy.
I can be girl.
I can be black.
I can be white.
I could go blue.
I simply choose not to.
Yet.

I can be ready
and not become.
Feel proud
when had not done.
But as all of these
which is me?
All.
And also
None.
