I Am

I Am

A Poem by sherra.

i am sight and sound
i am music
but music cannot be heard in outer space
space
a never ending vacuum
that sucks up my words
a black hole stretching me
'til i cannot breathe
but still i fight to the death to be
heard
i am tall to my counterparts
but we are all small
all so frighteningly small
specks in an ever-growing universe
all helpless to anything
like a baby
but a baby is more sure of himself
than i am me
i am everything
recycled matter 
the beginning and the end of the earth
carbon nitrogen oxygen
a big bang
the stars
the law of conservation energy
God made adam out of dust
and when i die i am dust too
i am everything
i am nothing
