Who Am I?


Who Am I?

Am I an expensive ornament
you wear on your arm,
ignoring its effect
on those who stare
and envy you your bling?

Or an appendage—
another arm to fetch and carry
your son and daughter—
all those leftover 
parts of you?

Or am I the wallpaper
dressing up the walls around you—
called the culprit by those
who do not know you are the one
who builds the walls?

Prompt words today are wallpaperappendage, ignore, culprit and expensive. All images from Unsplash.
