Starting From Where


I look ahead
to what is the I
that I may become
But who is I in now
who is I that has been

I would become ahead
but from where and what do I leave
How can be known the step
if not is known the start

Why such struggle to see
to know who is I that is
who was
yet hopes to become

I would reach ahead
but can I if not first I would learn
who is I
that makes the reach

Who is I
that was and remains
that is the me
who would seek an ahead
who is was
and which can be left behind

Can I
would I
dare to look
dare to see
Who is I that was
and waits to be
