Who Am I?

Who am I?

I am a lover
and a dreamer.
I am a writer and poet,
a musician,
a seer of the unseen,
a knower of the unknown.

I am free,
but I feel the bondage of
the unlearned souls
who try to shackle me
and make me follow their way.

I want to fly free as a bird,
but I am a worrier and a carer.
I feel the pain of others,
their griefs, their sorrows
and their stories
ground me to solid earth.

I am a learner,
learning to overcome fear,
fear of not having enough,
fear of no place to rest my head,
fear of no voice for my swirling thoughts.

But in the calm untouched sea
of my deepest being,
I do know.
I understand that the Creator will provide,
like a father giving good gifts,
and a mother nurturing her little ones,
not even a little bird wants
under the Creator’s watchful eye.

There are those
who live in greater fear than I.
They inhabit the passions of gluttony,
greed,
and the darkness of
Power.

They do not know who they are.
They have blinded themselves.
The do not understand
that in harming another
they perform the greatest violation
against themselves.
