I Am...

Empty Man


I am everything and nothing.

I wonder if death is an end or beginning.

I hear the wind break bones.

I see the sunset crumble into dusk.

I want to live amongst the stars;



 
I pretend pain doesn't exist.

I feel the light cuddle my skin;

I touch the lips of the sun.

I worry about not having enough time.

I cry to the rhythm of her heartbeat;




I understand why it's easier not to try;

I say fuck fear and love courage.

I dream about wiggling my toes in the sands of mars.

I try to listen to my ancestors.

I hope to chart a course beyond the unknown;

  1. An interesting premise for a poem. Everything and nothing.....depending on perspective, I guess. I don't think anyone ever things they have enough time. Probably no one ever does. If only I knew more of what my ancestors had to say.....maybe someday I will find out. A thought-provoking poem.
