See Who We Are

Poetry By: Henry Duthler

When I woke up this morning, this piece was waiting for me... it's amazing what lies in our subconscious.

Let me know if you've ever experienced "Sleep Writing".

See who we are

By Henry Duthler

See who we are

How far we have come

See the lies we've once believed

They turn to dust and blow away

See who we are

And how our lives become

Entangled in dramas well woven

Which we have sliced though and have found release

See who we have become

Through all these adversities

The misguided, mistaken paths that led no where

And left us to abandon course and chart our own

See who we have become

Independently, finding our own ways

Developing our own schemes and moves

And passing goals and achieveing, through believing

That the we we have become

Is the we we always longed to be

Side by side with the one we believe in

Has become the path, the stones and our way

Take comfort in whom we have become

For tomorrow is to some just another day

With its typical and inexplicable sameness

But for those of us who have become, our lives have only but begun

Tomorrow is a gift for all of us

The wrapping stripped away at the crack of dawn

Embrace the possible, as it defines who we all can be

And reside with all you know, be not afraid to share

This life we have is the gift, our chance to become

What shall linger the air, the memories we make

How our stories are heard, and how we will be remembered

When our gift becomes all we have, what we have learned and shared

When that gift is given back to those whom held our hearts, when that gift of us

Becomes the gift we give to you
