“I Am That I Am”

"I am that I am"
Am I Max? Am I Sam?
Am I dog or am I cat?
Are you horse or are you rat?
One describes body, one describes soul
How does one know if they are half or whole?
Am I girl or boy? Am I ill or well?
If I am then tell me, how do I tell?
The constant need to name and label everything
Troubles the heart and confuses the brain
One can not use words to describe who they are
Whether they be man, beast, or star
So do not ask,"Ar you beast or man?"
For I will respond with,"I am that I am."
