    You asked me who I am
    But I don't even know
    Part of me is four years old
    gathering Easter eggs
    In a blue dress and patten leather shoes
    that I can still smell
    Part of me is six teen
    Experimenting with life
    but in the moment where I
    sat in the woods
    writing in my journal
    listening to "Bon Jovi"
    Part of me is nearly thirty five
    and learning how to be a mother
    lonely
    I am tall and thin
    I am short and round
    I am young and old
    I am happy and sad
    I am mother and daughter
    I am someone's rock
    I am someone's water
    I am friend and lover
    I am Christian and Pagan
    I am blooming and wilting
    I am clay for molding
    I am the pottery formed
    I am part of the world
    and the world is part of me
    I am part of nothing
    and nothing is part of me
    Neither a nihilist nor an optimist
    And always somewhere in between
    and never really knowing
    Who I am

    I am and I will remain what I was when I will be.

    I mean, I was what I am but I will never stay on when I can.

    Be when I become, inspires to say that I never will be.

    If only I could be what I was, I might be what I want,

    will I become what I don't want to be?

    If so, don't panic, because I am who I am
