Who We Are?



I can’t figure this out.

Do we change throughout life?


one person the day we were born,

And the same when we depart?

Take colors.

The day you were born

You were red.

And you grew up surrounded by blue.

Does it mean you are blue because that’s your environment?


Are you just red in a blue world?

People learn, and adapt

Overcome and transform

If you may,

But we don’t really ever “Change”

Who we are

Do we?
