    PERSON OF INTEREST

    I am not a suspect
    I am a person of interest
    I have not been accused, arraigned, arrested or charged
    nor have I been mentioned in the vicinity of a crime.
    I have a driver’s license, a valid passport, a credit card, social security card,
    a voter’s registration card, an atm card, a phone number, a medical card,
    an email address, a website and even a college degree.
    I am not a suspect
    I am a person of interest
    to persons unknown who say I’m not the target
    of any investigation.
    My profile is kept.
    Everything I’ve ever bought is recorded;
    every deposit I’ve ever made, every website I’ve ever visited,
    every trip I’ve ever taken, every book I’ve ever bought,
    every woman I’ve ever made love with, every baby I’ve ever kissed
    is all secured in my computer dossier
    to keep the homeland safe.
    It may be a little late to tell you
    about what is now taking place,
    but your reading, hearing or holding
    these words have put you in the database.

    Very Nice Oldsoul

    Recorded and well written. The reality of today. Is we are becoming more interesting in many respects. My wish is that through the truth of it all. America heals itself.

    I'm more than a record of my existence. Birth, then death. Sometimes ignored thru the center.
    Somebody said scream the truth. But in a forest. The sound isn't heard because of the trees. Penetration. Around the ordinary. As I soar. Past time and space. I have some choice in my profile. I create the make up. Records kept by others on me are subject to change. Never allow yourself to be clocked. Change up. Schedule, never the same. Fail the census. They know it can't be true. They didn't count mine.

    It's "funny" how you may think that you're just an ordinary Joe, but that others, sometimes even some of your own folk, have a file on you and yours, and somehow you have to keep on living like you aren't really being watched. I'm feeling this one more than you know, or can attempt to explain. Deeply written and felt.
