I Am

Clarity and contradictions

Hopes and dreams and failures and betrayals

The sum of imaginings, and something unimaginable



My spirit is fire,

my body is earth,

my laughter is wind and air,

and my blood is the ocean.

I Am disposable, replaceable, recyclable.
My breath will dissipate and bear butterfly wings and my body will become loam and food for mushrooms

And I Am also everlasting essence --
I Am all of my works and deeds and even imaginings

I Am this and that, and even the other.

I Am,

and I Am,

and I always shall Be
