This poem actually has a meaning, but you have to put some thought into it.


I am black
I am white
I am day
I am night
Open cuts, and mended wounds
Afterlife, and empty tombs

I live in your city
I dwell in your rooms
I open your mind
You breath in my fumes

I teach your children
I lead the blind
I preach in your churches
Your life is all mine

I am strong
I am weak
I am mighty
I am meek
Behind closed doors
Under the sheets
In front of a crowd
Out in the streets

I am life
I am death
I am birth
Your final breath

  This is about God, the only thought that came to mind when I read it. Once again great work and thank you for writing it and sharing it with us.

  i like the contradictions like black/white day/ keeps the subject of the poem vague and creats some quick changes of tone that make this a fun read. gj

  Interesting.. I like the rhyme scheme. I personally think it would go better as lyrics instead of poetry, but whatever you want to make it is fine.

  This is a very complicated poem. But when i got to the middle I thought i was beginnging to comprehend it. Let me take a stab at it lol. Are you talking about God and all that he can do? I think you were able to capture the reader in this one. You had a great flow to it. And it stuck through the whole poem. I loved it and it is def a favorite.

  I like this. It seems to have a very strong point, yet no point at all. The rhyming was great, and though it was unclear I think that was a goal.

  This flowed so well - like a river of wisdom. I like that you illustrate that "IT" is everything - Good, bad, indifferent.
It was simply eloquent - if that makes sense. Sometimes we forget how simple "IT" really is.

  Your style is unique in this poem you sound almost like a rapper. I hope that is not offensive. I like the lines "i teach your children, i lead the blind, i preach in your chruches, your life is all mine." It really catches your attention and grips you. this is a no nonsense poem that covers all aspects of life. Very good
