(it really is something separate from yourself).

I am like a newborn.
I have what I have today;

some material and financial state.

perhaps a nightmare,
perhaps a cherished memory,
but only a dream - nothing more.
I will make all decisions and actions based solely
on what I have today as a starting point."
