The Unchanged Core

The Unchanged Core

Parts of me are scattered

All throughout the past

New traits sprout

To replace those sloughed off

In the name of Improvement

If I was so different Then

From who I am Now

But I am still me

Who was I Then?

In another score

Will I be a third me?

And which of the trio

Defines who I am?

Then Now, or Soon?

I like this, the dizzying questions; "If I was so different then/from who I am now/but I am still me/who was I then?" It sets the mind to whirring! Great write, I love that it is left unanswered...
