THE I

Before I was
I was
Before I became
Became I
Before I journeyed
I journeyed
Before I had root
I had root
Before the Light manifested
Light was
Before light became light
I became?
While I journey through life
Life taught
While growing I became
Who am I
While I found the reason why
Why I
When I knew all lessons well
Why?
When last breath leaves the I
Ah life!
