I Am

I am the sunlight, embracing with warm delight
And the icy cold river of blood turning hearts to stone
I am the guiding star in darkest hour
And the false beacon to the lost wanderer
I am the shelter in a storm
And the desolation in the crowd
I am the strength behind life itself
And death to the irrational hopeful
I am the Sun, the Stars and Moon
The Universe and Heaven's door
Or the gate to personal Hell
Crushing lost souls with innermost fears
I am the Seducer of mind, body and soul
Lifting up for starry flight
Or pulling down to Devil's lurid pools
I am Angel and Demon
I am Light and Darkness
Past, Present and Future
The silent muse within the poet's heart
The rage of lunacy
The whispers of the wind, singing sweet lullaby
The storm behind words, swift arrows of hurt
I am distance and closeness
Sweetest dream and worst nightmare
Comfort and grief, happiness and pain
Destiny and yearning desire
Despair and salvation
I am the shivering delight of burning passion
I hold a grip upon the fragile heart
I am fantasy and reality

I am the one solid certainty of life
The rock to build a house on
I am Home

I am Life's Symphony
Life's secret melody within
I determine your tune
I am to live and die for
For I alone have the power

I am
Your heart
Your mind
Your soul
I am you
For you are me
Therefore I am

I am Love

It seems almost like some sort of a mystery, even though at the end it says "I am love," I can't help but feel it has some other meaning to it... is it about some sort of religious figure, perhaps?
Well the poem was also very good. Quite interesting and unique.
Good job.

Munda,

You are, and so much more.

I like the "yin and yang." I guess love can be both good and bad, but even when it's bad, it's good. You expressed that very well.
