I am something

Am I Just

another nothing
 how is that possible
 I think it is impossible
 something from nothing
 nothing can't be something
 something could be anything
 but anything could be nothing
 a notion starts the motion

thoughts become things
 things could be anything
 and things are something
 but things aren't everything
 and everything is something
 but nothing is always nothing
 nothing plus nothing is nothing
 nothing from nothing is nothing
 another is the thing before
 another is the thing after
 so if there is nothing

nothing is nothing
 nothing before

nothing is after
 another nothing

is impossible
 I Am

Something
