I am who I am

I became what I thought I was

I wasn't what I thought I was until I became it

My estimation of myself is always one step ahead of where I am

As a child I thought I was unbreakable

I became unbreakable and thought I was broken

I broke and thought I had died

I tried to die and thought I was living


I became everthing I thought I already was

Until the day I stopped becoming and simply was

I learned that becoming is illusory 

All the things I have been are the things I was to start with

I forgot to remember

I forget to remember

I forget TO remember

Did you get it that time?

A very poignant and well thought out poem. I love the emphasis in the final lines

Nice one
