He in Everything

Poetry by | April 11, 2010

god
I am a rock.
I hurt those who hurt me.
I am vengeance.

I am a rose.
I pierce those who hold me dear.
I am deceit.

I am the night.
I engulf everything in darkness.
I am greed.

I am a tree.
I stand tallest among all creatures.
I am pride.

I am a river.
I stow away everything in my midst.
I am tyranny.

I am the Sun.
I show my brilliance to every being.
I am arrogance.

I am fire.
I burn everything I touch.
I am murder.

I am a rock.
Nothing can hurt me.
I am God.

I am a rose.
I am the most beautiful being in existence.
I am God.

I am the night.
I give comfort to those who need rest.
I am God.

I am a tree.
I give shelter in times of rain.
I am God.

I am a river.
I am endless.
I am God.

I am the Sun.
I give sight to those who long to see.
I am God.

I am fire.
I burn everlong with love.
I am God.
