I am becoming

I am not the person I used to be,
I am not the person I want to be,
but I am becoming...
I am not the future, I am not the past,
all I have is now within my grasp,
but I am becoming...
I am becoming Home to myself.

You are here beside me this little while,
you can help to guide me another mile.
We are becoming...
Let us step together until we part,
ev'ry day we have is a chance to start.
We are becoming...
we are becoming Home to ourselves.

I am becoming less dependent on other's acceptance of who I am becoming.
I am becoming a friend who knows when to hold on, and when to let go.

When in the future I grow to be
the kind of person I'm going to be,
I will still be coming...
I'll still be coming Home to myself.
