    who we really are

    lest we forget

    among the quarrels and arguments.
    of who we really are.

    caught up in the moment
    of the thoughts of others

    we forget
    who we really are.

    to be right and to feed
    the ego
    is not
    who we really are.

    to be caught up in the drama
    the conditioning
    the anger and the hatred
    is not who we really are.

    we are,you are,i am

    Re: who we really are

    What we aspire to be ... is not who we really are.

    We aspire to be strong ... we are fragile creatures.
    We aspire to be faultless ... we walk around with many foibles.
    We aspire to be successful ... we suffer from many failures.

    We are ... humans with failings ... which creates aspirations to be better than we are.

    But do not shrug from the reality that we are.

    What we are ... gives us hope ... and the hope of being is almost always more satisfying than being.

    I hope to be the King of England someday, but I'll be damned if I am crowned!
    (At last count, I'm 6 billion, 789 million, 123 thousand, and 45th in line ... so I don't worry all that much about it.)

    We long to be who we forgot
    Striving to remember of memories lost
    Past lifetimes each adding to the goal
    For your future self is
    Hoping to reach one source that is whole.

    I hope to be a poet:
    There once was a lad from Australia, who painted his ass like a dahlia, the color was fine and likewise the design, but the aroma -whew!- that was the failure.
