I am You

I am both wind and whisper
as the tenderness of life's rush
mellows the passage of posterity

I am both forgiving and fiery
to the softening of obduracy

I can be sorrowful and somber
or a paragon of felicity. 

I may be sincere, sometimes I'm not
from truth to a degree of fakery

I am the rashness of ribaldry
as the coarseness of a day of wrath
and the sense of a better path
chosen with wise analogy

I am defiled and graciously defined
oft praised and oft maligned

I am both reason and rigidity
for truth be told
I am the absolute worst and 
the ultimate best of humanity

Both wind and whisper
I am you!
