"I celebrate myself.
And what I assume you shall assume.
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you."
~ Walt Whitman ~
If we didn't know who we are,
Who would we be?
Take away our conditioning,
The voices that have influenced and sometimes shaped us,
The hurts, the rewards,
The successes and failures,
Is that all we are- a bundle of all that stuff?
Or is there something deeper, immutable,
Something utterly unaffected one way or another
What I've been through is something, but it's not everything.
