Here I am by Shalymar P

Here I am

Gazing at the stars,

Viewing the world in its sill

Ways, sometimes

How life feels like

Sand in shoes

Ever so uncomfortable

 

Able not to surpass the difference

between the sun and moon

they are both the great lights

in the extents of the sky

they both guide me through

life

 

Making paths clear

Though, people lack much

Sense

 

The only difference between

The bright lights, is one rules

By day and the other shadows

The night

 

I see both all the different,

But the same

Where one goes half insane,

The other is wise not to fool

 

That is sand in shoes I to me,

It is a tiffy I say,

How can we indulge ourselves?

Of only what we see

 

Here I am

Feet in sand, not sand

In shoes

 

As I look upon

The drifting ocean

And feel the tickle

Of the sand

 

I cannot fathom

What makes dust into dust and

Sand into sand,

Is it that one lives by

The sea?

And the other is what

Our flesh and bones are made of?

 

I am not capable to

Define either

I am not able to surpass

The difference between the two

 

They to me are all too

Different, but are the same

 

Here I am

I watch the dawn bring the

Day, and dusk bring the

Night

 

There I see the light fade,

There I see the light come,

Light and dark

 

Both brought with a

Brush of colors before

The expanse of the

Sky

 

What makes them so different,

I am blind to that fact,

For I cannot commit the

Act

 

I do see though what they

Do share,

 

But, I cannot think of

What makes them so different

I know one brings the day,

I know the other brings

The dark night

 

But I am blind,

How can one man be cruel,

How can the other love?

Who am I to see that,

I can’t see nor believe

That either is true

 

Here I am,

Not knowing,

Ignorant of all knowledge

I just see the act and

Believe the act is not

The person

 

The being has until final

Breath to make his mind,

Or be forever shamed in a

terrible land

 

Though, as a human I can

Believe which is the better place

To call home

 

Until, final breath do us part,

With our choice,

I know where I am

I do not know where

You are, but all I have

To say is, Here I am
