Countless lives inhabit us !!!!I don’t know, when

Countless lives inhabit us !!!!
I don’t know, when I think or feel,
Who it is that thinks or feels.
I am merely the place 
Where things are thought or felt.

I have more than just one soul.
There are more I’s than I myself.
I exist, nevertheless,
Indifferent to them all.
I silence them: I speak.

The crossing urges of what
I feel or do not feel
Struggle in who I am, but I
Ignore them. They dictate nothing
To the I I know: I write.
Fernando Pessoa
