Am I?

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

 

    

       Am I?

 

Am I these things

These senseless things

These things I think I am?

 

Am I these words

This flow of words

These words I say I am?

 

Am I these thoughts

These thoughts that things

And words are what I am?

 

Am I that thought

The thought that things

And words are what I am?

 

Each thought, each deed

Each word and thing

Is change of what I am.

 

Change is just the flow of things

The flow from where all action springs

That flow is what I am.

 

If I'm this change this constant flux

Then I must be this paradox

What I am I'm not.

 

And if I am not what I am

Then is not what I am not I?

So what is it that says I'm not?

 

It is not I who says I'm not

For I am, but then again, I'm not!

Either I could say I'm not.

 

Perhaps then its the I I'm not

That says I'm not the I I am

But then the I I'm not I am.

 

So then it must be neither I

The I I am the I I'm not

That says I'm not the I I am.
