In a sense, I am made of me,
Just look at me, me on me you see!
You may know what my purpose be,
But overseas, not so easily.

What am I?

It can be a

Letter

Where I go, everyone knows,

The address is marked clearly on the outside

No matter where, I am composed,

Letters are composed (written)

My journey there clearly shows.

Letters are postmarked during transit

In a sense, I am made of me,

Just look at me, me on me you see!

A letter is made up of individual letters (i.e., letters of the alphabet)

You may know what my purpose be,

But overseas, not so easily.

The letters are language-specific

I think you may be

a meme (of the internet variety, not the more abstract kind famously defined by Richard Dawkins).

Where I go, everyone knows,

Everyone knows that memes go on the internet, have their 15 minutes of fame and then are usually forgotten.

No matter where, I am composed,

Memes are a form of expression - they are composed by people trying to make an artistic or humorous point or a political statement by adding a caption on to an image or animated GIF.

My journey there clearly shows.

Memes are tweeted, retweeted, emailed, shared on facebook etc. When you come across one you can often trace it back through the sequence of shares/retweets to see where it came from.

In a sense, I am made of me,
Just look at me, me on me you see!

The word "meme" is made of "me" and "me".

You may know what my purpose be,
But overseas, not so easily.

If a meme contains a locally-known quote or catchphrase easily understood by people from one culture, its meaning may be lost on overseas readers.
