Self Awareness

Who am I?
What am I?
Have i become self aware?
Or has self awareness become me?
Who are you?
What are you?
Are you looking up to me?
Or am I looking down upon you?
Why do we have different reflections,
Yet share the same expression?
Why do I long to step down,
and for you to rise?
Is it wanting what we don't have,
Or having what we don't want?
I weep with thoughts burdened by thinking.
Oh woe is me, I long to be you.
But alas I am a tree.
