I May Not Be
Arthur Henry Isaacson

It occurred to me today
I may not be, that is to say
I think, but what I feel
May be just digitally real

A user friendly face, put on
A hologram, a con
Perhaps a software redirect
Just bits and bytes, all neat, correct

An idea hung in space
A past programmed and then erased
How do I tell if what I see
Is simply input key by key

Is this fear just mind unbent?
Or am I simply signal sent
Do I exist beyond the power?
Is the scent more bytes, not flower?

Do I really want to know?
On myself the truth bestow
Does it matter any more?
What the future has in store

Was I born in cyberspace?
Or in His holy stately grace
Is the end electrons gate?
Or a saint’s noviciate

Consciousness is mine
Whether born or by design
Besides, who is to say?
I am not the Lords display

Written in the code
The master did create
The nature of us all…
Programmers imitate
