I am not who you think I am...

I am not who you think I am
I am better and in the same breath worse
I am never a thing for long enough to fertilize you
therefore you cannot conceive, gestate, or birth an informed opinion of me

I am not what you think I am
I am river but not "A" river
no river is ever constant
So why call it "A" river?
Did anyone ever step in the same river twice?
Not possible

I am sea,
body of water
Deep and churning with life
and things, and possibilities
as each second is born
Vomiting scum on banks and shore in one tide
Or spitting spoil onto the same riverbank or seashore in another tide

I am not the thing you think I am
I am fluid and at the same time constant
Yin and by the same faith Yang
Strong and according to the same law, weak
Answering to the whims of all Seven suns
Of the Seven Universes that have claimed me

Think I am constant and I am not
Think I am bad and I am good before the thought is fully formed
You are not who I think you are
And I, I am not who you think I am
