We see you not looking

The people
the ones that do not know themselves
are the very first to name who they are.
And repeat and repeat.
thinking, Maybe if I reinforce
stacked facts,
they will become a paragraph
they will become a book,
a story like the others seem to have.

In the way we repeat a lie till it seems truth
we repeat a truth till it seems a way.
Remember
you are not words.
You do not race your storyline by speaking faster.
You cannot name yourself
before you have reason to arrive.
