I Am Man - Poem by Kaio Clark

I am the hater of hate
Despite my views on love
I am the killer of death
Despite what I've done
I am the king of kings
Despite my pheasant status
I am the tyrant of dictators
Despite my weaknesses
I am the evolution of human
Despite I'm here for revelations
I am the royal of the poor
Despite the shack I live in
I'm am the winner of winning
Despite all the times I lost
I am the Man of the Hour
Despite my 80 years left.
I am what I am
I am Man

    There's a saying in my language Hindi. It goes like this mann k hare har hai, mann ke jeete jeet (Mann here is your heart) It means that if in ones heart one thinks that he's won it is so and if in ones heart one thinks that he's lost it is so. This poem is so apt for this saying. It's amazing. (Report) Reply

    It's beautiful how your contradicting statements lead to very understandable paradoxes. Sorry if that didn't make too much sense, but neither does life, and that is what makes your poem, 'I am Man' so awesome. (Report) Reply

    Kaio this one is a 10 for 10, as Sam said the use of contridictions was great and emphasis the turmoil inside of you as two different agents was good. My favourite is
    I am the royal of the poor
    Despite the shack I live in

    good duality

    I like the use of contradictions, it says a lot about the complexity of man and his possibilities. (Report) Reply

    I like this. It has a freshness. When I write, I like to pretend the audience has just been bored to death and is about to turn the (web) page; what can I say that they haven't heard a hundred times, what is new and original and creative, how do I keep them on the same page with me? Good job here, I say. (Report) Reply

    'You come of the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve, ' said Aslan. 'And that is both honor enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth. Be content.'
