       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

    "I live in your city
    I dwell in your rooms
    I open your mind
    You breath in my fumes"
    wow, i love all of the things you cane up with.
    the topics are so vast...

    "I am life
    I am death
    I am birth

    i love it when poetry ends with meaningfull things like death.

    Everything has its end

      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/night...it 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
