Just like you I am a complex living organism.

Just like you i have to learn how to exist on this one planet.

Just like you i, at one time, had a father and a mother,

(That is not to say all have known their true father and or mother, or that who they think of as father and mother actually are!)

Just like you i must struggle to survive and make progress in this one world we live in.

Just like you i have to choose how to best (in my opinion) do that.

Just like you i frequently fail to make the best choice, the first time (or even the 2nd or  the 3rd).

Just like you I have to largely conform to the rules of the society I choose to live in – or leave it to conform to anothers.

In short,

I AM

Just like you.

In the things that matter MOST!
