Who Am I?

Who Am I?

Who am I, I say, 
A person with little sway
Or a dynamo who wants to play?
Who asks this question now on display?
Is who I am
Who I am
Or is I AM
Who I truly am?
I’m in a jam
For who I thought I am
Is not I AM
And if I am
Not who I am
And I am I AM
With Heaven inside of me
Which should bring me glee
Yet troubles me!
I mean seriously!
Why me?
Who could I tell
Without fear of Hell?
Only God knows the Truth
And this may seem uncouth
But, if I am I AM
Maybe we are all in a jam.
What if we all are I AM?
Asleep unaware
Fearing to dare
Now Aware and Awakening
Treating each other as if all are one
Then all that zeal would appear to be done!
