Who I Am


A deep sense of who I am,
a surge like a giant urge I can't resist;
stirred up the ocean of strength within,
so that my Spirit reaches the immortal height;
and at the end I and my Soul aligned.
I am who I am, a life in the flesh;
I am who I am, that image in the shadow;
yet, more than I am is the Spirit that lives in me!

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
