I am unlabelled.
I am a species.
I am of the physical, and the mental:
I am…. of life.
I am other, and yet, other is undefined.
What though of this being, its purpose; what does it give back,
in return for, the nurture received from earth, and oceans?
What of its connection to; the elements: planets, stars, and all that lies beyond?
What is its very essence, its cause, its place upon this earth?
Where lies its core value?
To what is it answerable to?
What is this being of aliveness, before it becomes defined?
I simply ask these questions,
for neither my physical, nor mental self,
has the power of conception.
Therefore, it is ‘the that,’ which is unknown, I seek endlessly.
For surely, I am more than…
…. just being.
