Gradually Becoming

A man becomes confused, gradually, with the form of his destiny; a man is, by and large, his circumstances.

— Jorge Luis Borges—

I am gradually becoming.

I am gradually becoming—me.

Slowly, I am growing—from seed, to root, through trunk, sprawling into branches, evolving into tree.

Everyday that I dig deeper into the earth and reach higher to the sky, I become more of me, more of what I am gradually becoming—an organic, living, planted, yet free, being.

Because albeit circumstance plants us, it is being that sets us free.

Thus, I don’t fret what I am becoming, for I know it is being that is most becoming of me.
