Poem -

''I AM.''

''I AM.''

I am the one who graciously passes the torch 
To the younger ones amongst us 
The runner-ups of life X times 
Four hundred meters till the finish line 
Of course 
I am the Divine light burning inside 
Of a gloomy night, I’d describe 
As a vessel with a dark and hollow room 
Or better yet a tomb 
As Light is the peace I’II rest in later than soon 
I am the combination of evil and good 
A bittersweet cocktail of chaos and order 
Annoyed by the voices in my head that destroy 
The right things to do in a world so wrong 
So I go along with the voice that says; 
Destroy the order and pick chaos instead 
I am the gift card to many men and women 
Who love to spend their blessings on  
Themselves and share it with the world 
Out there 
Showing off their giving 
Like waving a Versace purse in the faces 
Of poor girls 
I am the Sovereign ruler of my Kingdom 
Wherein I dictate every move I make 
What I say goes 
 And as I blow the final horn 
All will follow 
I am the Goddess of my creativity 
I use peace to meditate on  
Deep-seated poetry 
So I can free the planted seeds 
To blossom into the trees 
I commanded them to be 
I am the mirror of hope 
Anyone who looks  
Into me 
Will find the seed 
They intended to reap 
A field filled with lots of crops 
Of peace, love, and light 
I am the winner who lost 
The passion to lose 
So I hang my medallion 
Like Two Chains chain 
All the pain and suffering  
Were gone as soon as I heard these words 
I won 
I am the seat of change 
Rest your legs, my child 
You have been running 
Away a mile too long  
From your fears 
It's time to have a seat  
And have a talk with  
What you’re most afraid of 
Breathe in, Breathe out 
And tell me all about 
Your scary thoughts
