You Are What You Are (Whatever You Do) - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

You are what you are
Always everywhere in your heart
Come near or be afar
You can never from yourself depart

It isn't easy to see what it is
All that is inside of you
Around wheeling start time’s bliss
What comes in and out to renew

Follow your footsteps going
Into the woods of the unknown
With every opportunity showing
Where dreams had before flown
Systems and spaces to nowhere
Something is going to become
Stars of the shining everywhere
Each of their faraway from

You are what you are
Always everywhere in this space
Come near or be afar
You can never get out of your place

Run as you may to come back
Always the same into your same
Merry-go-round on to your track
From where you in creation came

Follow the sun and her sideways
Run through each your call
A morning may come in its grays
And become yellow by fall
Be this or that for its purpose
You are the one to decide
Flooding in a motion that goes
With life's opportunities glide

*(“You are what you are” – If anybody tells you differently, than he/she has a ‘formula’ about him/herself…)
