All we are is who we be,
By me talking to you, I am really talking to me. Thousands upon thousands of minds, lives all so intricately intertwined the value of these synaptic connections is far greater than either of us have the capacity to see, hence you pretend to be you and I pretend to be me.
If I take from you, I take from me, because we are all connected to this same tree. The difference is or individual expression of “me”, yet if we want to live in a place that’s nice you have to consider that everyone is “me”.
The difference between me and the cat is nothing more than perspective of where one branch starts and one flower becomes you and a leaf becomes me. Together we can live connected on the same giant tree. You cut a branch, you cut a leaf you cut a flower we loose the value of the connections that make up our one beautiful tree.
We can all live as one, but you have to remember that all you are is who you be. I tell you, but really I am telling me. When you come to understand the meaning of this poem you too will see.
