I Am - Poem by nidal habash

I am the carpenter of my own thoughts,
And a doctor to my own heart.

I am the priest of my own soul,
And a healer when life takes a toll.

I am the captain of my own sail,
And a general watching my own trail.

I am the mother delivering my own pains,
And a father earning my own disdain.

I am the painter of my own destiny,
And a writer to this book of blasphemy.

I am the shepherd of my own fate,
And a lonely wolf passing life's final gate.

Topic(s) of this poem: self discovery, self image, self reflection
