What does it mean to be “true to myself”?
Is there some doppelganger on a shelf
To whom I’d pledge allegiance and belie
My own true selfhood and thereby defy
What Providence intends for me to be
Through manifesting my integrity?
That may be so, for there are many ways
Down which a lost and errant spirit strays.
If so, then how might I identify
The Self I truly am, lest I should die
A wayward soul who never heard his calling,
For such a fate would finally be appalling?
If I attend to what I can do best,
My true identity will manifest.
