Moses’ (Un)Becoming

Away from the palace and the bullrushes,
All the riches and the striking
Is the place where my path of un-becoming
Of diverting

Has been revealed.

My whole life I have been a prince enslaved. 
Not to Pharoah
But to the illusion that I am
who I am not.

How I will greet you, Ceaseless Becomer
I cannot say.
But as I remove what you have asked of me
I pray for the strength to witness my true self

That I will be whom I am meant to be.

And become.
