Who I Am


Breathing in the entire universe,
breathing out, dissolving into infinite space,
I let go of my fixed ideas about reality,
my personal stories,
my ego driven goals and desires.
For one moment I refrain
from reinforcing the same old thought patterns,
those deep grooves worn into my brain
over decades of life, a smattering of wisdom whispers
and makes it through to my conscious knowing
that it is all mostly unknowable.
Breathing in all that is–
the mountains, forests, deserts, oceans,
the planets, stars, sun and moon,
breathing out, letting it all dissolve
back into space.
I let go of who I thought I was
and who I think I should be
and let myself become who I am.
