20180320:19:19 – Do you know, You?

Does anyone know who I am?

When I go, when I am not here, will you know who I was?

Will my family remember me?

Will they know me?

Will they know the real me in the we?

Stephanie? I was a carpenter, I still am. Back then though, I loved building houses and tearing them down to build them up again. I loved putting in walls, hanging doors, and adding windows. Once the outside and inside were done, I decorated the inside. I made it my home. Then I tore it down, then I built it up again. Then I tore it down again.

It’s who I am.

I was a woman. I was Stephanie. I was your friend.

I am a human. I am Stephanie. I am your friend.

Past tense and sense. Present tense, heaven sense.

I am still here, but am I? do you know me at all?

Did you hear me when I said that I was a “we”, at least two. Did you hear me when I say I am a they. Did you hear we?

Pink or blue, did you hear we?

Let’s slow down, here for a little bit and walk through these doors. It’s all too fast?

Does anyone know who I am?

When I go, when I am not here, will you know who I was?

Will my family remember me?

Will they know me?

Will they know the real me in the we?

Selah? I was a carpenter, I still am. Back then though, I loved building houses and tearing them down to build them up again. I loved putting in walls, hanging doors, and adding windows. Once the outside and inside were done, I decorated the inside. I made it my home. Then I tore it down, then I built it up again. Then I tore it down again.

It’s who I am.

This creative brain… it’s been here the whole time, hasn’t it?

The one you are reading right now?

The poetry of it all?

Come now, it’s who I am.

and you love me, right?

you do love me, yes?

love me, yes?

love, yes?

love?
