I Am Me

I am born,
      Into a certain genetic combination,
      Into a certain social, cultural economic fabric,
That is not me.

      I am trained, I am conditioned,
That is not me.

I am me
Because –
      I dream, I hope, I think,
      I journey through life discovering myself,
      Once found, I aspire perfection.

Then when I peer into me:

            I see the world just the way it is
            And all the beauty it contains,

            I am free from all the ties that bind
            I bind myself to the world around me,
            I revel in these ties that bind.

            I see the barriers in my head dissolve
            I see humanity and marvel at it,
            I revel in being human.
