I am the sun and moon,
I am the air and sea.
I am the glory of God
and the decadence of Satan.
I am the power of the universe,
and the fragility of life.
I am the flesh that gives form,
and the thought that gives substance.
I am the beauty of love eternal,
and the filth of hatred everlasting.
I am the divinity of birth,
and the repugnance of death.
I am the embodiment of pleasure,
and the exquisiteness of pain.
I am all that has been,
and all that will ever be.
I am deity,
I am humanity,
I am.

Engulfing, to say the least. And, thank you for responding so kindly to my latest posts. Your praise is not taken lightly.

Thanks Sunshine I appreciate your thoughts. I don't give praise lightly (as you may have read in the alley or elsewhere). Your work moves me and in time I may even venture some suggestions or critiques your way - after I am more familiar with your work.

Again, I'm glad you appreciated this piece - it truly does mean a lot to me.

Well that pretty much covers it all! I must say JP this was very powerful in that I turly felt overwhelmed by the vastness and all encompassing nature of your words. Very well done! I bow to you and yours.
