Where no tyranny is tolerable

I believe I am everything I know,
that "I am ... all that I have met,"
and that all the friends I ever had
walk beside me wherever I go.

I believe I am a part
of everything there is and was,
that you are also part of me,
that you and I are universal.
I believe that all religion
is borrowed or made up,
that all divinities we worship,
all the demons that we fear
live only in ourselves.
I believe that Time will always win.
I believe that everything will pass.
I believe that nothing lasts forever,
In Nature, in People and in Change,
that all Life goes back from where it came.

And I believe that Friendship is for life;
and I believe someone will love me,
even if I don't know who she'll be,
that something I will bring is needed,
that by someone I am being sought.

I believe you have written a very deep philosophical poem here, Jaime.  It was a great read and really makes you think about your place in this world.  Well done.  

All writing comes
by the grace of God.

This is simply wonderful. I enjoyed this so much. You write with such passion. The way you express yourself truly shows that of a wonderful human being. I surely hope you find the one....and the one finds you...
I hope to read more.

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

I believe in Jaime and that poems like this one are tapping to get out from his insides and be written.  That's what I believe, Jaime.

Your friend
