I Am The One Who is wondering
Who Am I?

I Am The One my Mother taught
to ALWAYS be nice.

I Am the One She taught
never to gloat

I Am The One She taught that
sex was something you submitted to

I Am the One she taught to 
become a secretary
aspire to marry my boss.

I am the One Who has been spending her life
trying to get over everything that she taught.

I Am the One Who finally realizes that 
by doing the opposite she still defines me.

I am the One Who Wonders
Who Am I?

  1. I would think that one way or another each of us are in some way still defined in some way by our parent(s) and I don't know if anyone really definitively knows the answer to your question.
