bahagi ka ng lahat
you are a part of everything

i shift and transform
present and identify
everywhere, every time
everyone, every one

i have no bounds
exist without borders
i am as i become
as i unravel and make new

spectrums and specters of being
breaking from, out, up
breaking down, being broken down
there is no place but every place

i am who i say i am
love in all forms, all times
i encompass all
all encompass me

you are a part of everything
bahagi ka ng lahat
