What are you?

The Buddha was asked one day
as he was walking down the road,
«What are you? Are you a man?»
The Buddha said, «No, I’m not a man.»
«Are you an animal?»
«No, I’m not an animal.»
«Well, are you God?»
«No, I’m not God.»
Then, in great frustration the person asked,
«Well, what is it that you are?»
He simply said, «I am awake!»
