The Power Of 'I'

the word 'I'
depicts
our 'total being'
with one
majestic stroke.
this lone letter 'I'
even when sitting
inside the alphabet
still stands like us,
alone.
'I' numerically
is like the number '1'
equaling the total
count of 'I'

(I=I=1)

VERY GOOD.IT'S GOING INTO MY FAVOURITES
interesting meditation... a 'majestic stroke'... always worthwile...!
Lechen...clever girl you! I see how one might think'alone' is lonely...'I' is a powerful word and there is so much strength in it!
good point well made., though not as isolating as first appears, until the sense of self through 'I' is discovered there is no drive to communicate that self, leading eventually to a concept of 'we': -)
