Am I Me?
That limit-bound my organelles.
One carries DNA remote.
Yes I am eukaryote.
I hold ancient seas inside
So in a brackish brew reside;
A chordate, backbone, and I breathe.
Yes, I am fish from ancient seas.
I swing my arms to move about,
With forward eyes in shortened snout.
I have flattened finger nails.
Yes, monkey with a remnant tail.
A harder question than these three:
What does it take? To be me?
A question I face every day
And hope to answer my own way.
