Who am I?
Am I the pieces of a puzzle,
which when complete, comes to fruition?

Am I my thoughts
my actions, my words?
my intuitions?

When the forces of evil capture me
and hold me hostage in my thoughts
am I then a victim?

If I falter and deviate the norm,
and heed unseeming urges
do I suffer conviction?

What debate then afronts the mind?
to what do I owe the blame,
of rampant thoughts askew,

Of reckless mind meanderings,
of worthless brainstorm with
integrity long overdue?

One true search of the mind
would enlighten the quest
and the honest truth uncover

My inner self, is who I am
hence the girth
of the truth I discover

I liked this one. Questions we have all asked at one time or another and put into a nice poetic verse. But some of us never solve that puzzle!

The puzzle is never complete, I think, except perhaps at the second of death. Your poem is very thought provoking...as a poem should be.
