WHO are we?

WHO ARE WE?
(a poem by Carole Brown)

Hi I am …..

I am an investment banker,
I deal … with numbers and data, trends and models,
I am dollars and yen, and pounds and euros,
I make money, that is my aim,
I am hungry to succeed,
I need to win.

Hi I am …..

I am a C class executive,
I lead ….. with corporate visions and missions, markets and shares,
I am success and growth, and position and power,
I make profit, that is my goal,
I protect my shareholders,
I must please them.

Hi I am …..

I am a therapist,
I listen …..  to beliefs and values, feelings and emotions,
I am histories and hurts, and pasts and pain,
I help mend, that is my role,
I am caring to others,
They need to live.

Hi I am …..

I am a parent,
I tend …… to babies and toddlers, teens and young adults,
I am teething and tantrums, and rebellion and independence,
I give love, that is my joy,
I create the safe space,
For my children to grow.

Hi I am …..

I am an artist.
I create …… stories and songs, paintings and pictures,
I am words and music, and colors and shapes,
I give form, that is my gift,
I voice the invisible,
For others to absorb.

Hi I am …..

I am a scientist,
I observe …… evolution and adaptation, survival and decay,
I am cells and chemicals, and processes and systems,
I study life, that is my quest,
I show natural order,
For humans to be humane.

Hi I am …..

I am invisible,
I make …… elements and molecules, life forms and the innate,
I am atoms and electrons, and neutrons and protons,
I am a building block, that is my honor,
I connect with others,
I exist in each and every.

I am in all the above,
I am.
