On being known

on-being-known

We do not see ourselves
the way that others see us,
yet we are known.

Known since before –
before we knew, or even
asked the question: who am I?

Known not in isolation,
a number or location,
but known in connection: who we are

Indivisible, eternal and temporal,
known in being, because
to be known is to be loved.
