About the Poem

" I am " speaks of searching for peace which starts internally. This is all about self-exploration, and how we come in peace with God, with man, with nature.

This writter has a beautiful soul. The words flow from the heart. To bleed upon pages for all to see, to find a sense of semi-belonging, to finally be. And to share with those of us looking, longing, waiting breathlessly. Mimi

I Am

No oneís completely corporeal.
Seek inside what is ethereal.

Looking around this material world,
I must have been blinded -
to think that this is the only place -
thatís ever existed
- where happiness seems so scarce, so shallow
- where I worry much about tomorrow

Running away from my inner-self,
I never found real joy
Thereís a paradise inside of me -
I must nourish to enjoy
- where I gain awareness beyond emotions
- where I feel a flow of cool vibrations

In the languor of the night, I just close my eyes
Like the guru, I invoke my soul to higher heights
And from whatís written in Sanskrit, I realized -
Heaven is when inside and out Iím harmonized

I am the water ...
I cleanse away my impurity
I am the fire ...
I burn with spiritual energy
I am the earth ...
I bury my negativity
I am the air ...
I breathe new life inside of me
