Zelda's Inferno exercise: "I am a prime number"

This week's Zelda's Inferno exercise: use a metaphor that likens the self to an inanimate object, and consider what this means to aspects of your personality.

I am a prime number
unfactorable -- breakable, to be sure, but not cleanly

you will not understand me
as a product of others

the only factors that make me
are the One and myself

there are infinitely many of me
scattered throughout space

but no clear pattern links us
only predictable statistically

simply defined, yet
still mysterious after years of study
