I Am Poem

Do not be mistaken
This is not a poem
I am the poem
The reflection of a battle on fire
The wings flying against the wind
The eagle hungry for bait
Because these words search for the living dead
I am the unbelievable story you are yet to hear
Do not be cheated by my three minutes on stage
I stumble upon unforgiving blocks of pain, fear and darkness
I cry a dozen times inside my heart, ocean of tears
And each breath I take in a poem is an attempt at conquest
Because I fight….I fight broken dreams in solitude

My soul is a bird
I love beyond surface emotions
To the deepest roots of existence
I run….I run with my mind
And I fly for the enigma that is life
Be there mist before me or heavy clouds
Tomorrow finds me in the day after
This art….this art is destiny in my hands
But do not be mistaken
It is not the joyride it seems
It is passion brought to the ground
Given life, and well lived
It is me…
