I am.

I am the avid, the vacant
I am the observant, the patronising
I am the patient and the patient
I am the stormy eye'd child new to the earth
I am the Redwood
I am the OCD Mother
I am the Nubian Shaman
I am the imagination of youth
I am innocence
I am the truth.

I am...

I am all of these things
I am none of the above

Only in the end,
Am I,
(Solely) A slave

To the two true Gods

Death and Time
