Self Discovery

How do I interpret who I am?
Do I analyse the multifaceted edges of my person?
Do I piece together my life story
Looking for the missing details of my journey?
Do I ask friends, acquaintances,
Loved ones, for their version of me?
How do I see the real me?

Is there anything on the surface that can be called me?
The tones of light and dark that colour my perceptions
Are not who I am at the deepest level of my exixtence
They are the jester, deceiver, a cloak of rich disguises
A weave of many threads of undetermined colour and intensity
Never making up their mind as to which pattern is I

I have so many cloaks in my wardrobe of the self
So many and yet…
Not one that is the true colour of I

I will burn them all in the fires of my discontent
Until I lie as ashes at my feet
Without disguise….
Without deception…

I feel the deep gratitude of relief
As I stand unfettered in my freedom
As I open my eyes, not to interpretation
But to the source
I…
