Who Comes Before What

who what

What are you?

What am I?

How can you know what I am until you know who I am?

Who I am explains what I am.

But we have little time for knowing who anyone is.

Labels please.

Declare yourself.

Christian.

Atheist.

Agnostic.

Spiritual.

Buddhist.

Muslim.

Republican.

Democrat.

Libertarian.

Liberal.

Conservative.

Shall I go on?

Busy. Busy. Busy.

Facebook.

Twitter.

Blog.

Texting.

Quick, immediate.

In a 140 characters or less what are you?

But I told you that you can not understand what I am until you understand who I am.

Who I am requires far more than 140 characters.

More than a Facebook comment.

Far more than a blog post.

Who I am requires time.

And effort.

And patience.

Too much work you say?

Then I feel no compulsion to tell you what I am.

The who comes before the what.

What is all people seem to want to know about me.

Pigeonhole.

Classify.

Categorize.

Label.

Dismiss.

I am far more complicated than your attempts to what me before you who me.

So  pigeonhole, classify, categorize and label me

but by no means know me.

    Ha! I knew it… you finally admit what you are! All of it! Wow, you are a complicated eruption of nouns and adjectives… If only you had been properly churched, all of this might have been avoided. Now, what a mess.
