Philippians 1:21 "for me, to live is Christ to die is gain"


When I think really deep down…
Think down deep in my past thoughts...
And I wonder what I am…what is my mind…
I am the floating sea of green not wanting to fall
I am that little bleeding white ball...
I am my Father my Father watching over us all...
I am hidden dollars small youthful in pockets…
I was happiness...
and then I’m alone….
I am my momma my momma calling me home…
I am the evil clown deep; deep down under ground that she fears will capture me…
I am the love she shows with even all her bones…
And I’m the monster threatening it all…
Now this is all the past and its all fading fast...
Yes the good and the bad are moving away…
I let the new have their way…
I am my first love…I am the white dove...
I am the light that I don’t have to fight…
And I’m the love of my father; my father and mother...
But I fear; I fear… that the monster is on his way
Oh please…please just stay away…

This was a poem written for my english class during the small week of poetry we did. It was intended to be a "where I'm from" poem but turned out to be alot more in dept and meshes where I'm from with "what I am"
