A poem – Who am I?

I awoke in the early hours of Sunday morning, 1st February 2009, and wrote this poem. Writing poems is not something that I do, but I was inspired to say something about how lost we have become. After so many sad and sorry examples we see today of: corporate greed; lost jobs; loss of morals, ethics and values; loss of identity; human disconnection from our center and from the world around us, I wanted to share my views and ask for your response to the words below ….

And …. if we become disconnected from our source, then who do we become?

WHO AM I?

(a poem by Carole Brown)

Hi,

I am nervous,
I am waiting to meet these other people.
I am shy,
What can I say about me,
t
hat could possibly interest them? ……..

Hi I am …..

I am an investment banker,
I deal … with numbers and data, trends and models,
I am dollars and yen, and pounds and euros,
I make money, that is my aim,
I am hungry to succeed,
I need to win.

Hi I am  ……

I am a C class executive,
I lead ….. with corporate visions and missions, markets and shares,
I am success and growth, and position and power,
I make profit, that is my goal,
I protect my shareholders,
I must please them.

Hi I am ……

I am a therapist,
I listen ….. to beliefs and values, feelings and emotions,
I am histories and hurts, and pasts and pain,
I help mend, that is my role,
I am caring to others,
I help them live.

Hi I am …….

I am a parent,
I tend …… to babies and toddlers, teens and young adults,
I am teething and tantrums, and rebellion and independence,
I give love, that is my want,
I create the space,
For my children to grow.

Hi I am …….

I am an artist.
I create …… stories and songs, paintings and pictures,
I am words and music, and colors and shapes,
I give form, that is my gift,
I voice the invisible,
For others to absorb.

Hi I am …….

I am a scientist,
I observe …… evolution and adaptation, survival and decay,
I am cells and chemicals, and processes and systems,
I study life, that is my quest,
I show natural order,
For humans to be humane.

Hi I am…….

I am invisible,
I make …… elements and molecules, life forms and the innate,
I am atoms and electrons, and neutrons and protons,
I am a building block, that is my honor,
I connect with others,
I exist in each and every.

I am in all the above,
I am.

About Carole Brown, Learning Coach and Repatterning Practitioner

My early days as a biologist and my career as a leadership consultant and learning coach have largely influenced the work I do now. I am attracted to many different spheres of knowledge and wisdom, especially those that are on the cutting edge and relate to the processes underlying change. "Resonance Repatterning" is an energetic approach to transforming our patterns and moving beyond the blocks that keep us from reaching our highest self. It is a stunning process that gets right to the core and elegantly identifies what needs to be transformed. I first studied RR in 2000 before we had quantum physicists explaining the basis for energy work. Now we have the science, there's every reason to embrace this evolutionary approach to change and growth and use it to explore how to become your best self.
