i wrote this a few months ago while on my travels... it's not exactly a literary masterpiece, but i enjoyed it, so i thought i'd share it...

I am fire
and I am water
I am sky
and I am earth,

I am iron
and I am bronze
I am silver
and I am gold,

I am agate
and I am marble
I am jade
and I am diamond,

I am him
and I am her
I am them
and I am me,

I am past
and I am present
I am future
and I am always,

I am less
and I am more
I am all
and I am nothing,

I am giver
and I am taker
I am master
and I am slave,

I am king
and I am beggar
I am student
and I am teacher,

I am silence
and I am music
I am sound
and I am song,

I am light
and I am dark
I am night
and I am day,

I am stranger
and I am friend,
I am lost
and I am found,

I am giant
and I am atom
I am part
and I am whole,

I am truth
and I am good
I am safety
and I am shelter,

I am love
and I am peace
I am warmth
and I am comfort,

I am question
and I am answer
I am knowledge
and I am wisdom

I am life
and I am death
I am god
and I am you...
