Who I Am


I am woman, I am man.
I am white, no black I am.
I am Christian, I am Jew.
No, but wait, this is not true,
These are what, they are not who.


How can I say it so you’ll understand
Each of the pieces of who I am...


 I am connected, just the same,
To brothers and sisters, too many to name.
In the present, of the past,
All together to the last,
We are as one doing our best,
Striving to nurture, to help the rest.


Now when asked, there's no need to explain
I am human not always humane.
My answer's quick, and you know it's true,
You are me and I am you.
