I AM, Poetry by Susan Marie

Genre: Inspirational

I AM
by Susan Marie

I
am
that
which
cannot be
caged
tamed
tried
understood
included
deluded
or left

misunderstood

I am
the fairy tailed children
asleep beneath blankets
on a cool summers eve,
books in palms
eyes shut tight
warding off monsters
in closets
underneath the bed

I am the angelic presence in dreams
the dark rising depths
present
in the time between
night and day

I am
the bleeding hearts
of artists
music flowing
like manes of thoroughbreds
strings and violins
concertos and preludes
the rise and fall
of notes
the voice of the oppressed
painting alone
writing alone
speaking to the masses
standing in front of
sculptures
in galleries
half numb
from having their soul
placed on a
public platter
picked apart
and critiqued

I am
the constellations
stars,
the ancient raiment
of the majestic
velvet night
coaxing solitude
creation
rendering you
sleepless
with desire

and the great Gods
contemplating existence
tossing magic
and medicine
electrified
towards Earth
teaching lessons to the
mere human soul

I am Woman
Man
Child
Mother
Father
Brother
Sister

I am a lover
loved
loving

I am the volcanic
rumblings
of every tired soul
and every smile
and tear

I am an argument
and agreement

the birds that berth
in your
crown chakra

their song
is mine

all creatures
earth, dirt, silt
gems, stones
twigs and trees
every root and crevice
all footholds and paths
the falling leaves
kamikaze
every rock and shell
the waves and oceans
all bodies of water
feathers, flight
the bees that buzz
around the new bud
the hand that guides a sprout
from seed

the secrets the wind
whispers
the fierce embrace
of winter
the warmth upon
your face
heart
body
soul
and the sweet cool
calming waters
of life

I am death.

wild

I am
Woman

Here.
Now.

I am every element
all emotions
every fable told
by firelight
every word
written
spoken
uttered
screamed
and sighed

the true Goddess
the wild soul

I am that which cannot
be kept
nor set free

I exist
without logic
in rational conscious
thought
in esoteric
holy
nakedness

I am the rich man
and beggar
the king and the jester

I am the grass
all species
and the sky
kaleidoscopes
of spectrums

I am good
versus
evil
versus
self
versus
sentience

I am a conundrum
unto myself
a human shell
existing
as pure
ether

I am heaven
and hell

I am the destroyer
and creator
