I Am


photo from Deviant Art



I am truth
I am lies

I am laced with hatred
I am drunk with love

I am soaring to new heights of brilliant thought
I am wallowing in the cesspools of ignorance

I am the creator of indescribable beauty
I am the bringer of unimaginable horror

I am art, music and literature
I am war, famine and genocide

I am a complex machine, which you may never understand
I am a simple organism, food for worms

I am the center of everything and the universe flows through me
I am nothing

I am humanity

I am human

I am

This is wonderful -- musical pronouncements -- it kind of reminds me of "Song of Myself" a little.

I am lies
I am nothing
I am
