I Am

I Am

A Poem by Odrah
"

Affirmation pretty much bowled me over this morning. This is what came from it.

"
I am green
I am wild
I am the untamed wind
And the jubilant trees.

I am a sunburst
A shooting star
A crashing wave
A bloom.

I am the power of the earth
The passion of nature
The product of love.
Everywhere I go
The Universe whispers in my ear.

I am the Divine Lover
The Divine Mother
The child, student, and teacher
I am yearning
I am dreaming
I am hoping.

I am a prayer
On the lips of Eros
A tiger
A swallow
A gentle lullaby
And a battle cry.

I am broken and whole
Forged in a cosmic fire
That burns bright still
Lighting up my soul
Lighting up the sky.

I am eternity
And I am me
Wondering, and sometimes knowing
What it all really means.

This is like a prayer, and a positive affirmation of being without the cheeziness. It feels genuine. That's rare cuz it's much easier to write depressing poems lol

One possible suggestion is separating it into stanzas, but that tends to be a personal preference either way.

Good read.

Very nicely constructed. Sounds like you woke up happily one morning and suddenly realized all the wonderful things you are, recognizing all the beauty the world holds for you.
In a sense, to me, it seems almost Freudian, "I am, therefore, I must be." Okay, so it's a bit of a stretch here.
Good job.

What do you mean by affirmation? The piece is good, but the description blanked me.

But, also to clarify, the "Bowled over" idiom can also mean "overwhelm" and not just "surprise".

Ah .. that's fascinating to read how one beauty gets erupts down to the ripples of very astounding words.
"The product of love.. " how true. ev'n all naive spirits're products of love thou; hardly the ones appreciate or admire the symphonies - the pleasure - one delectation of very love. Very deep and artistic poetry you seemed to be bled in. Seemed, you be one ubiquitous who needa be in everyone's hearts but without getting "hurt". So deep and perceptive!
