Identity Of The Self

I suffer from the worldliness
I suffer in silence
A loss of identity
Adience

I think
You give me
A sense of identity
Love

I read this poem decades ago as a college kid seeking meaning in life... I kept a copy in my wallet ever since... It has made all the difference in my life...now, my son keeps a copy in his wallet! it's the best teacher of self sufficiency!
Marvelous. Our existence either by chance or with a purpose is just one way pleasure. One could take it as pleasure for creator or pleasure for one self with no right for an answer.
Very well articulated poem. A man's expectations do not stop at any point of time or stage. Thanks.
Does the universe owe us anything? No one stated it more succinctly and eloquently.
