What Would I Be If I Were Not Myself

What would I be if I were not myself -

a star pilot?
a silent monk?

a good guy?
a bad boy?

content with life?
contemplating death?

blissfully ignorant?
intellectually despondent?

lost in love?
lack of heart?

a little less cocky?
a dash more charming?

a citizen of the world?
a refugee of nowhere?

a citadel of certainties?
a cocktail of contradictions?

Mayhap, what I would be, if I were not myself -

is no more than who I am today
and no less than who I can be tomorrow
