I Am


By Rachel Dawson

I am I
As seen by my own eye.
I hear the words of me that be spoken,
But I refuse to let them beat me broken.

I am I
As heard by my own ear.
I taste the salt of your minds distain,
But from my purpose it will not cause restrain.

I am I
As tasted by my own tongue
I feel your judgement upon me cast
But to your verdict I will not hold steadfast.

I am I
As felt by my own heart.
and from myself, I will not depart.

For, I am I,
Seen by mine eye,
Heard by mine ear,
Tasted by my tongue.
Felt by my heart.

I am I
And of the world
I am, but a part.
