As I Am

I will hit with holy anger.
I am the fierce one
As a tiger.
You will feel my Godly wrath.
I am the pure one
As a man.
Do not cross my burning path.
I am righteous
As my fury.
You will fall under my thunder.
I am the only
As I am.

No matter your status or your wealth when we go before our maker we are all equals. Our world could be so much better if we let a little Burns into out lives.
Love the writings of Robert Burns...and have since High school Linda Smith
Beautiful poem with rendition of words to utmost justice.
There is a very important line missing from the last verse as published here. If you look carefully you will see the last verse only has 7 lines instead of 8. The missing line comes after For a' that... and should read It's coming yet, for a' that, . Burns was an international socialist centuries ahead of his time, he fervently believed that all men are born equal, and many Scots share that sentiment with him.
