(10/071972 / Belleville, New Jersey)


I am your desire
I am the force that takes you higher
I am the words in the serenade
I am the voice in the parade

I am your name on the board
The life you can afford
I am the value of your quarter
I am your son
I am your daughter
When you are thirsty
I am the life in the fresh water

I am love from underneath
Pulsing in your heartbeat
Shining in the words that you speak
I am from above
I am from the scar under the glove

I am the torch in your hand
When reality is distorted
I am right there where you stand
I am your sorrow and your pity
I am the ugly and the pretty
I am the lights in the city

I am the black hole in your eye
The secret passage into the sky
I am the reason why you live
And the reason why you die

I am the wind and the rain
I am your joy and your pain
I am you and you are me
When I look at you
Beauty is what I see

I am your sadness your excitement
I am your happiness your enlightenment
I am the music that you sing
I am the man in the king
I am your highness
Your plus and your minus

I am the jewel in the gown
I am the diamond in the crown
I live in castles and sleep under the bridge
I live to hassle to follow and to lead
To stay and to leave
I come to you through the air that you breathe

I am the most beautiful spectacle you ever seen
I am the things that you touch
The places that you been
I am your luck
I am your sin

I am the ground that you walk
The cement holding the block
I am your laughter, your talk
I am god, I am life
I am the blood, I am the knife

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
