I am–Nothing and everything
I am–Saint and sinner
I am–Man and Divine
I am–Living and dying
I am–Strong and fragile
I am–Love and hate
I am–Good and evil
I am–All of these things
For one cannot exist without the other.
Would you know the laudable in me
Without staring my indiscretions in the face?
Look within me to find the mirror of yourself,
All that I am is you, perfect and imperfect.
There is much for which I am not proud,
But I take comfort that I am who I am.
Just as it is fruitless for you to deny
That you are who you are.
~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
So true and strangely calming!
Extremely powerful. Reminds me of the Neil Diamond song, “I Am I Said.”
I hadn’t though about that, but you are right, thank you very much. 🙂
This was a great read Don, an unexpected departure from your usual but great poems that I´m use to read. You obviously are a master of the English word-Literature-poetry.
Thank you Charly and I apologize for the late reply.
That is correct, you cannot have one without the other.
After all, are we not the sum of our parts?
We certainly are, both good and bad.
