Who I Want to Be

I’m not who I want to be

I feel the incongruence

Deep within my soul

The goal is not perfection

But a more integrated self

In which my stated values

Match my lived experience

In which I live freely

From who I am fundamentally

In which I know who I am

And love her unconditionally


I’m not who I want to be

Yet I’m putting in the work

To mine the depths of my soul

To discover what’s present in my core

To release what doesn’t belong

And refine what longs to shine

I don’t want to be someone else

But a truer version of myself

Each day I’m becoming

More of who I was created to be

More of who I want to be
