DAILY INSPIRATION – I AM NOT I

DAILY INSPIRATION – I AM NOT I

I am not I.
I am this one, walking beside me,
Who I do not see;
Who at times I manage to visit
and who at other times I forget;
The one who remains silent while I talk,
The one who forgives, sweetly, when I hate,
The one who takes a walk while I am indoors,
The one who will remain standing when I die.

– Juan Ramon Jimerez
