SPIRITUAL POEMS FROM SPAIN: “I Am Not I” By Juan Ramón Jiménez (“Yo no soy yo”)

Inner-Shaman-Awakening

“I Am Not I”

I am not I.

                   I am this one

walking beside me whom I do not see,

whom at times I manage to visit,

and whom at other times I forget;

who remains calm and silent while I talk,

and forgives, gently, when I hate,

who walks where I am not,

who will remain standing when I die.

Juan Ramón Jiménez

Yo no soy yo

Yo no soy yo.
Soy este
que va a mi lado sin yo verlo,
que, a veces, voy a ver,
y que, a veces olvido.
El que calla, sereno, cuando hablo,
el que perdona, dulce, cuando odio,
el que pasea por donde no estoy,
el que quedará en pie cuando yo muera.

Juan Ramón Jiménez
