On The 'I Am' Series.... - Poem by Eric Cockrell

the 'I Am' series for me has been
a journey, a constant and continual
sense of evolving, finding the self by
'losing the self in the selves of all others',
the identity that has not a name, but many names...
many faces, many colors, many smells...
the raw sense of the connection,
the sacredness of the common,
the ecstatic weeping of souls joined by need.
the dance of the spirit, the sensuality...
and the pounding beat of hearts within hearts.
if i ever put together another book, this
will be it! this is what i have to say!
this series contains the wholeness, and all
the broken pieces of my life.... these poems smell
like me, and like you!
thank each of you for bearing with me....
we are the journey!

    I agree patti, you have so much more to give
    In the I am series, and what a book that series
    would make.

    Lots of compassion herein. Also revelation of oneself. And the sense of oneness as a human race. A poem of great depths. Enjoyed very much. vote 10
