I Am

A way with words that seeks for life to affirm them
A snapshot of a former life in a gallery of un-dead memories
An imperfect love song with all the right words and wrong melodies
Set to the cadence in an orchestra of failures and overrated accomplishments
A son divided in two where love seals the faults in the foundation
A bridge over the gap in a torn flesh
Mixed shades of paint upon the canvas of a mind searching for its true colors
A saint with a sinners tendencies made of contradicting appetites
Lust and love, life and death, obedience and rebellion, a critic and defender
Peace and war, grief and joy, selfish and selfless
Cloven between natures of this inner tension of transformation and delay
The calm in the eye of my own storms, destruction and restoration...
