The Dying Tree

October 19, 2009

Just a mental projection
over a physical reality,
what it is to be
no one could ever tell me.
I am living and breathing
blood and flesh,
but I am something more
as well,
terminal, and yet endless.
Forever bound to a dying tree,
I am a leaf
longing for eternity.

I Am I

I am.  Maybe this is how God and I are similar.
He names Himself ‘I Am’
(I reduce it to ‘I’ but I am I)
And he created me in His image
therefore I, too, am. 
It feels good to say it
after so long of trying to disprove it
(or at least disregard it) 
it feels good to accept that I am
and therefore I do.

I’m at Home

March 1, 2009

The old hills don’t even know
but I’ll ask ’em anyhow,
the fire I’ll build won’t burn
and the world I’ll find won’t turn,
the end may never come
but, anyway, I’m at home.
