I Confess

I am man, I am woman

I am soldier and civilian

I am Arab, I am Irish

and okay, a wee bit

German

I am your father, I am your mother

I am your sister and your brother

no rights nor reason born

to imprison me in your sorrow

Instead,

determinations a self-decided

factor, the factual remains as night

steadfast and surgical

arrests –

aims to confess,

this is the way the day

compliments the flight

of the crows, who call back

the black curtain

of the night

Forget never,

I claim the sun and stars

I claim the night, I am the day

my world sees no prisoners

my bloodline reaps the great-ness

the best-est, erst-

the lightest, thrice

the world times 3

including me.

I am thee.

“The best thing for being sad ... is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. ... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.” --- T.H. White
