I am from MYSELF


I Am From Myself

I am from
From memories and thoughts
I am from the grass in the ground
I am from the grass in the ground,
(Sneezing, itching, and runny eyes)
I am from the birds in the sky
The humming bird,
To find peace, and fulfilling their purpose
I am from tree and love,
From thoughts and sounds,
I am from trees and love
From thoughts and sounds
I’m from “Just be your self” and
“Stop watching the computer”,
“Stop listening to music” and
“BE QUIET NEIGHNBORS”,
I am from being kind to others and others will be kind to me
I am from dad’s eyes and Mom’s hair,
To flat feet from both sides to the care if others,
In my heart memories of the past and dreams of the future, mystical imaginations floating in my mind,
I am from the heart which will never get lost or left behind.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
