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

I am me as I have found.  I am Zarthustra's Will to Power, and Plato's philosopher king.  I am Siddartha's absence of karma, and Thor's thunderbolt. I am the dichotomy of life/death. I am everything human and all things deitic.

I am just a man.

getting your point across to the reader.

It's up to you to make it happen."
