I am not my own!
But parts of you - -
And you - - and you.
My sprit’s trapped in you.

The author's comments:
We are not our own, but parts of our parents, our grandparents, our ancestors. Our poor spirits are trapped in patch-work bodies.

I didn't get it till I read your comment, but now I totally understand it! I think it's a really, really good idea, well written. May I suggest that instead of repeating the same stanza, you add something a bit more revealing about your purpose, then repeat the stanza? Otherwise, brilliant!
