Honestly, I’m not sure What to think Of these days of uncertainty As if uncertainty Was never a part of our living And dying Are we so much wiser Being able to see the unseeable Panic filling our hearts Pretending To stave off the inevitable Knowledge enough To hide like mice?
We ask ourselves Is it enough to be alive While not living By what measure Will one consider Infinity Coming to that final conclusion That realization of consciousness That those things we can control Should never Control us?
“I Am” If all the elements in my body can be found in the earth then:
I am the ocean, the waves and the foam.
I am the sand and the air. I am the wind and the clouds and the crumbling cliffs. I am the grass of the field and the dirt under my feet. I am of the earth and in the earth, and the earth is in me
I am the ant and the dragonfly I am the heron and the fish I am the gnat catcher and the hummingbird I am the seed and the tree I am the light and the darkness I am the sun, the moon and the stars I am the peace that falls at the end of the day I am the voice that tells the animals “it’s time for bed” I am the red of sunset, and the lavender of sleep I am of the earth and in the earth, and the earth is in me
