Who am I?

(Okay, so this exceeded 10 lines :))

Who am I?
Am I a mother, a daughter, a wife?
Was I even born? Did I ever die?
This me---happy, sad, jealous, angry
Peaceful, anxious, energetic, weary
Am I these fleeting thoughts and emotions?
Or am I my actions, my intentions?
Am I just a mass of cells?
A collection of bones, and capillaries, and neurons
Carbohydrates, proteins, amino-acids, hormones
That miraculously managed to find the right place
And do the right thing...
Am I the five elements?
Earth, water, fire, ether and space?

Am I love, peace, joy, as the sages say?
Pure consciousness-- untouched, unwavering,
Ever-fresh like the morning ray?

I have no idea...

Its a new ‘me’ every moment, a new story being told
I can only wonder about this miracle, this mystery
That’s waiting to be solved...

Introducing Madsie 

I have to admit that I am slightly mad ,
But let me assure you - that I am really not too bad !!
However there is no way  I could be called "Goody Goody",
And by the way you know - I am also a "Foodie".
I like to cook and people I love to feed,
I like to write and books I love to read.
I am a mother , I am a daughter - I am also a wife
This is all I have to say today about my life .
