Jesse Wood

I Am A Human Being

You know not the depths of my being
Nor can you begin to comprehend
For I am not as open-book as you may think
I am an Individual full of strength and courage
Not in the archaic or even a modern day hero sense
No, I am none of these things
I am who I am and I will not change
For anyone because I was created
To spread a bit of happiness and joy to an otherwise unstable reality
I detest this world, but I know that I must remain
Until I am called upon for my final battle
Darkness will swirl around me
And I will be called to share the light
With loved ones and friends
I will be at peace.

    Whoa.. I love it. Like they say, poetry does come from the depths of the heart. And this one speaks volumes. I mean...who really knows you? ? Do you even truly know yourself? ? I am a human being..not a super being.

    Pureness of heart mind and spirit ringing out loud and clear. I think you could enhance the poem further, Jesse, by finding alternatives to 'I am'. On a separate note, thank you for your lovely words on 'The Parting'. Pleased to meet you. Warm regards, Gina.
