BY TONYA KILLIKELLY

I AM
Your yin and yang Your alpha and omega Your brand new Xbox But I’m also your Sega.

I AM
Your ancient and wise Mephistopheles in disguise Yemaya and Jesus
I AM Muhammed and Confucius.

I AM
The spirit of Rebellion
I AM conformity
I AM Absalom against David Your Saint and fiend.

I AM
Mozart and Zeppelin Screaming joy and pain
I am the beauty of love And the sorrow of disdain.

I AM
The Karma & Sutra
The sensual, born knowing
The innocent and guileless
My eyes trust when I close them.

I AM
The ruthless and uncaring The restless and overbearing Demanding and relentless
I AM empathy and awareness.

I AM
The quiet in your storm And the arms of everlasting I AM with you forever With each seasons passing.

I AM
The Sanskrit of your dreams Translated into earth
You will know me, hold me And find what life is worth.

I AM
Distant and present
I will hold your hand
And leave you to wonder Because you don’t understand, The lessons I offer
From lifetimes everlasting
My vision will burn you
My love is emcompassing.

I AM
The seasons I give
And the morals I learned I AM Eternal
I AM Yours.
