Inspired by Mr. Nobody

Who am I?
Why am I the person I am?
Why do I do the things I do, and want the things I want?
What am I trying to prove? And to whom?

I suppose these are questions everyone asks themselves at some point in life, inspired each time by something else.
But stop what you're doing, just for one minute, and ask yourself...
Who are you?
Why are you?
What is propelling you to act the way you act?

There is a reason for everything, and there is never a wrong turn. Sometimes you will get turned around, but who is there to tell you when you have?

Why do you feel something, and make everything work around that certain feeling? Whether it be love, hate, ambition, inspiration...

Why do I love, and make everything around me mold towards that love?

Is there anything more powerful than love? Anything more inspiring?

Think, listen, love, laugh, speak your opinions.

But what are your opinions? Nothing you say is truly your own. You heard it from someone else, or read it in a book that you did not write. You side with the story you like the best, and then act on what you liked.

You do not create ideas. You just add to old ones. You do not have your own personality. You just feed off of what you like, and don't like, from others.

You only love those who you are taught to love. You only act the way you are taught to act.

You only believe what you are taught to believe. Only what makes sense to you.

You will not do something you do not believe is right, but who will ever truly be right?

Who are you, to tell me what is right?
Who are you to tell me what to believe?
Who are you to tell me who, and how, to love?
Who are you, to tell me I'm not my own person?

Do you exist?

You do not exist. You are only a part of an imagination. Why should you exist? If you do not form your own opinions, your own beliefs, your own thoughts and actions. Why should you exist if all you are is an empty shell, molded by others?

Tear off that shell. Dig deeper.

Who are you?
Why are you?
How is it that you are, the way you are?

Like x 100. Very nice. *applause*

I really like how you start off writing almost from the perspective of the person who hasn't formed themselves, and then you change the perspective.

Thanks Lil, this has inspired me. =)
