And You Are?

I am a tree
Knarled and bent so peacefully
Days reaching longer into the leaves
And all I see
Is what has lain before me for a thousand years

I am the sea
Washing and chasing mischievously
White foam drowning and drawing lines
Across the skyline
For all to see

I am the sky
Flying ever forward before your eyes
Immense and ever-present as time passes by
And still I try
To touch further

I am the ground
Rolling and roaring with the fiery core’s sound
By gravity forever bound
Into shape and found
By all wanderers and explorers alike.

And I am you
Wishing and dreaming as humans do
Crying and laughing as children woo
Their parents and leaders with faces
So smooth

And I am me
Seeing all that is laid before me
Playing and plotting mischievously
By gravity forever bound
And in my heart is found
All of our dreams.

everything around you effects you, from the stranger you never know to the sea you sit beside every summer.
