I am, so am ‘I’ ?


                                                                     Am I


                                                                    ‘I’ that moves?

                                                                                             No, not I


                                                                                           “I’ is just a form;

                                                                    Am I


                                                                   ‘I’ that feels?

                                                                                            No, not I


                                                                                            ‘I’ feels;

                                                                  Am I


                                                                ‘I’ that thinks?   

                                                                                            No, not I


                                                                                           ‘I’ thinks;

                                                                Am I


                                                                ‘I’ , the spirit?

                                                                                           The conscience?

                                                                                           The intellect?

                                                                                           The soul?

                                                                Know not I

                                                                Who am ‘I’?

                                                                I am, so am ‘I’ ?
