Who am I?
by oohdear
K+ (PG)


Inspired by the poetry of Bulleh Shah

I know not who I am
Nor am I a believer amongst the un-believers
Nor am I pagan disciple of false rites
Nor am I the pure amongst the impure
Neither have I read the Bible or the Quran
Neither have I studied the Torah or Vedic texts
Neither in opium, nor in wine
Neither do I remain intoxicated with wealth
Nor in happiness, nor in sorrow
Neither in filth, nor in pureness
Nor was I made from fire
Nor was I made from water
I know not who I am
Neither am I from the East
Neither am I from the West
To the North I do not belong
The South is not my home
Neither have I found the secrets of religion
Nor am I from Adam and Eve
Nor do I have a name to be known by
In myself
I am the first
I am the last
I do not believe in duality
I have never known anything else otherwise
I am the wisest of them all
I am the biggest fool of them all
Do I stand alone?
I know not who I am
Neither am I Moses
Neither am I the Pharaoh
Neither am I awake
Nor am I in a sleeping daze
Neither am I still
Nor am I in motion
Do I stand alone?
I know not who I am
I know not who I am
All I know is
I AM HUMAN
