I am a tree
deeply rooted
soaking in the seasons
braced for cold and chills
I stand alone against wind and rain

I am a flower
tossed about
living only for today
torn apart by wind
and neglect
crumpled under the feet of others

I am a song
sadly poignant
deeply mysterious
haunting and lovely
helpless to do anything
but sing

I am a friend
warm and embracing
trusting but careful
marked by my past
eager to love and to care

I am the ocean
most of what I am
lies beneath
dangerous and dark
murky and tangled
drowning in myself

I am who I am
all of these
none of these
a creation of love
curious and creative
fiercely strong and independent
but fragile and easily broken

A bird flying high
with a broken wing
and a song to sing
rising above
but swooping below
in and out
past and present
reaching ahead

I am a tree
with the promise of spring
budding again
with new blossoms
and out of myself
I sing

  1. Nice poem, Cindy!

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed your poem. Yes, you are all of those things and more. You are the essence of life, the breath of God flowing through you, a beautiful person in His sight.

  3. Beautiful, Cindy!
