Self Realization

by PHOEBIX

I am born with a name
It is not the one
My parents give
It is not the one
A christening bestows

Deep within my soul
There dwells the essence
Of who I am
At the center of me
At the center of time

It lurks and lingers
Waiting, waiting
When will I know
The name that is me
As my life flows on

Who am I
What am I
Where should I go
What do I want
What should I know

How to understand
The name that is me
How will I find
What I am meant to be
What is my name
