**i Am**

i am a bull's rage
hazy and red
an angel's tear, left on a death bed

i am the sky
so filled with mixed emotions;
my hail and rain pelting down,
on those who get in my way

i am odysseus, i swear
facing more trials and snares
than the average hero; knowing as if in prophecy,
in the end, that i'll be alone

i am a dying victim's last breath;
struggling to make it through cold pursed lips
struggling to break free from confinement

i am a river racing; wanting to play with the rapids
hoping not to get lost out at sea
an young girl deserted
left fresh with harsh memories

well i guess to put it quite simply
i am...just me
