ME  Identity…I-dentity. Who I am, right? Who I am. What I am. What I aim to be.., as a, as a, as a person? As a, as a, as an entity. Identity. I’m meant to be my own. Me… Beat. See, see, philosophically I’m, I’m, I’m ready to be what I’m ready to be. What […]

O’ I long to call you ‘brother’, for ’tis much more than friend,Thicker than blood ’tis understood, a bond beyond, and without end.O’ I wish to call you ‘sister’, and in glory with you be,To weep and joy, new faith employ, until the Lord we see.O’ I desire to call you brethren, the time draweth […]
