i am me

i am me
by Ty Ngachira on Saturday, December 31, 2011 at 6:24pm

I am the longshot
I am the one they never so coming
I am the life beat of a heart once dying
I am the old horse that keeps kicking
i am truth in a world that keeps lying
I am the runner who though the race ends keeps running
I am the dancer who keeps moving though the cutains falling

i am the longshot
i am the raindrop that split the earth
i am the straw that broke the camels back
i am the bullet the vest couldnt catch
i am the arrow the armour couldnt stop
i am the pebble that cracked goliaths skul
i am the hair grown back on Samsons head

i am the longshot
i am the manifestation of a revolution
i am the stmbol for a new generation
i am the underdog who becomes champion

am  picked not just chosen

i am the voice they cant mum
i am the song hope cant stop but hum

iam the last of a dying breed
yet its hope that i bleed
am he whose passion is a creed
created by gods decree

i am the f that made lame hot like flame
i am the g that made low glow

i am change,
i am difference,
i am uniqueness

i am wine from The true vine
i am what u cannot be

    An interesting and evocative summary, indeed...from one whose self-awareness is definitely pronounced. Enjoyable.
