I Am What I Am - Poem by Susmita Dasgupta

I am what I am,
I am Me.

I am the Sun
I am the flower
I am the rainbow
I am its color

I am the bird
I am its wings
I am the monsoon
And the cuckoos in the spring

I am the mountain
I am the snow
I am the seeker
Who seeks no more

I am the desire
I am the lust
I am the saint
I have no past

I am all passion
I am the pain
I am the tear
That melts into the rain

I am the laughter
And I am the joy
I am all happiness
A child's broken piece of toy

I am the mother
I am the child
I am the creator
And I still destroyed

I am the universe
I am the earth
I am its life
I gave its birth

I am infinity
I am the nature
I am the God
And I took care

I am everything that you can
Touch, feel, smell or see
I am but nothing
Man, Woman, Child or HE
I am the dust and
I am the stars in the sky
I am the love
And I am the seasons passing by

I am what I want to be
I am Me
I am You
And I am all that could be.

    so intensely portrayed...and after reading this I quote my favourite actor I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” - Munroe (Report) Reply
