I am

I am fire
I am water
I am earth
I am air


I am the wolf
The owl
The eagle
The bear


I am love
I am loss
I am grief
I am pain


I am love
I am joy
I am rhythm
I am rain


I am one
I am all
I am the tree
At autumn's fall


I am sun
I am moon
I am shadow
Standing tall


I am perfect
I am ruined
I am lost
I am found


I am the world
The nation
The city
The town


I am truth
I am lies
I am between
For I am twilight


I am the whine
Of a homeless dog
On a dark
And stormy night


I am the sob
Of a lover lost
Alone at last
Consumed by fright


I am trapped
In the prison
Of my elaborative
Judgmental mind


Searching for a key
Which does not exist
Which I cannot
Will not find


I can struggle
And watch this room
Tighten, a lung
On the shrink


Or I can breathe
And remember
I don't have to believe
Everything I think
