Not Me

Trippers and askers surround me,

 

People I meet…the effect upon me of my early life…of the ward and city I live in…of the nation,

 

The latest news…discoveries, inventions, societies…authors old and new,

 

My dinner, dress, associates, looks, business, compliments, dues,

 

The real or fancied indifference of some man or woman I love,

 

The sickness of one of my folks – or of myself…or ill-doing…or loss or lack of money…or depressions or exaltations,

 

They come to me days and nights and go from me again,

 

But they are not the Me myself.

 

~Walt Whitman
