We Are What We Were


We are what we are,
Not what we eat.
Food can make us full
But will never make us replete.

We are what we say,
Not what we have read.
We can rewrite all day
But not erase what’s been said.

We are what we think,
Not what we see.
Eyes can be closed,
But the brain is never free.

We are what we love,
Not what we hate.
After death love remains,
The other will abate.

We are what we are,
Conjured out of thin air.
Magic indeed;
We are what we were.
