Memories, who am I without?
Seem essential for me to be me
Identity? Who do I become
Day that I forget – wipe the slate clean?
What survives when this memory is history,
Born again, no recollection of this life?
Like my last life
Memories, make me me today
I believe define whom I now play
Identity for this life at least
Give the one context for adventure
Yet here I am, and if you think about, does my not remembering past lives compromise my present life experience in any way? And perhaps in fact recollection of past lives would interfere with my current endeavour … prevent me getting into character properly, or fully realising my chosen life mission?
