Who I Am is Who I Am

Who I am is who I am
And who I am is who you see
For truth is etched within the eyes
The eyes reveal that it is me

What I say is what I feel
And what I feel is in my heart
My heart speaks only for itself
And from its song will not depart

What I know is what I've learned
And what I've learned is what I've lived
What I've lived has filled my soul
With grains of sand so finely sieved

My soul speaks only for itself
Its tenet is its only plan
The sands of life pour from within
Displaying who I really am

Thank you Jewel. I call you Jewel 'cause it's easier to remember.

Ohme - you're sweet

Severn, Thanks for the compliment

Lizz,
Beauty is as beauty see
And that is enough for me.
Beautiful poem.

Sy,
What it is ,is just a verse
Of anyone at anytime
What you said is what I heard
And I didn't read between the line
What I know is that your words
Are always warming to my heart
For everyone on passionate forum
Is warmed by words that you impart

If what you are is what I see
Then you're a gattling gun to me.
Your poems shoot out in such a blur
And always are top caliber.

White dove,
It's just a rhyme,
I know that's true
But you are right
It speaks of you


Balladeer
What you are is talented
You spin a tale beyond belief
My head 's still reeling from the scene
Down there on highway 1-8-3
What you write is quite superb
For what you know is what you write
And quite superb each noun and verb
My steering wheel's still turning right!
Elizabeth
