I Am.What Is? To Be.

I Am.What Is? To Be.

A Poem by Arly Parent

I try to live my life well. I claim to be something. I say I am. I must breathe it and live it in everything that I do. I STAND for something.

I Am
the red flag
a burning brand
an olive branch
a floating leaf on the eaves of the ether
I Am

I stand for something

an ideal 
stemming idyllic springs of life-sustaining water
reasons for being and doing and saying and speaking
reasons for breathing other than necessity
reasons for structure,
and mercy--
reasons for love
and honor

I stand for something

I Am the S-shaped pattern on the diamond hard shield
the blood stained t
the dove arrayed with light
I Am

i am Meaning

There's nothing about me. I play with pauses as well as silence. I write words, assign meanings and junk, and play with a language that might be as much my own as another. I don't know. more..
