Of All These I Wonder

Standard

I have tried to run from self
I have tried to deaden self
I have tried
to hide my self

I have tried to know my self
that is the self know by others
that is the self known not to me

I have tried to be the self
that is the self
that is known but alone to me

I have tried to catch my self
to wait for self
to urge my self to be

I have tried to reach for self
and I have been most cruel to self
And I have yearned
to be a friend to self

Yet of all these I wonder
what have I learned of self

One thought on “Of All These I Wonder

    In learning and observing self the dynamics of change in time and place are evident. Finding self is a difficult task because we perceive our self changing as we evolve in thought, feelings, body and spirit. Can my self be present long enough for me to really know my self.
