I am

Am I?
A careless tossed ember creating a fire?
A sea of scared trees paralyzed by the flames?
A gush of wind escalating dark desires?
Stormy rain showers driving away the blaze?

Am I?
The fluffiest of clouds, pillow fighting up high?
A rainy day with gleaming beams of pure light?
The brightest of rainbows exposed in the sky?
A big smile of hope shining in saddened eyes?

Am I?
The pretty, the ugly, the good, and the bad?
Every truth that you owned but never quite had?
Emotional bags that were heavy and sad?
Warm gifts of love that makes every soul feel glad?

Am I?
The voice that you hear telling you what is right?
A soothing blanket catching your fears at night?
A clear guide transforming dark thoughts into bright?
The one always there supplying deep insight?

Am I?
A shiny star winking, twinkling well displayed?
The moonlight that causes all darkness to sway?
Sunlight that brightens all your upcoming days?
True self carried in you and leading your way.
