I Am.

I am raven, black as midnight
I am dove, white as snow
I am sunshine on a summer's day
I am moonlight in the foggy twilight
I am dark and I am bright
I am blessed and I am cursed
I am joy and I am sadness
I am noise and I am silence
I am awake and I am asleep
I am near and I am far
I am everything and I am nothing
I am pleasure and I am pain
I am slave and I am free

"I" is anything but reality.

Mossy,

An eye for an I
To recognize the false self
Vision of nothing

hey...
I reallly like this one. Can I link to this on my blog? Also, do you mind if I played with this idea and wrote my own version?
This speaks to me, in some fashion...

Jim,

Thanks for enjoying it. I was inspired by the bipoplar disorder to write this poem. It's an on again off again type of illness, black and white, every day an opposite of the day before it seems.
