I Am - Poem by Maria Sharon Moemise

I am
Sharon Maria Moemise

A sample of nature's wonder
Blemished by earth's anger
Pure of heart, without regrets
For that what I seek, I shall beget.

I'm a child, spawn of earthly nature,
Heavenly designed, God's creature
No care for scars, lines...life's directions
In His image He made us... no imperfections

Possibilities, chance or abilities
Are some of our time's realities
holding onto dreams freely begotten
Pain, hurt, past fears forever be forgotten

I am who I was made to be
Daughter, mother, sister and me
Upon whom God bestowed many bessings
Of love, peace, and life's lessons

I am, in my eyes, queen of my humble throne
mistress of my mere existence, ever alone
I am, I declare, no paragon of virtue
But I am all woman, and that is true.
