Who We Are

We finally became who we are
Beyond choices we never knew how
Have we yet to come so far?
When everything we knew then isn't to be now

The many things in life exist only if you believe
Fate without ending is afterall neverending fate
Given life to ourselves we foolishly deceive
Is it truly upon death we honestly await?

One choice to lead you there
An otherwise to yet lead you another
Who’s to say either to be isn’t anywhere
Perhaps influence or simply a true believer

Creating ourselves to either or neither be
Nor are we or we are what you and me see
How are you and I am fine but that’s just me
Did you remember a you when the world be we?

This moment wasn’t from before to be found
Still simply discovering and uncovering thus far
Once more upon choices we never knew how
How are we to become indefinitely who we are?
