I Am

I am but a simple man,
I try to do the best I can.
So many things get in my way,
I see the challenge of each day.

I am just a work undone,
I am a child of the sun.
As it shines, I grow strong,
I struggle, when it is gone.

Like a river that always flows,
When it rains, my pace grows.
I find peace at the sea.
It’s the place I long to be.

I am much like a flower,
Requiring food and a shower.
I grow taller in sunlight,
I can grow to any height.

All these things and many more,
I am a wave that greets the shore.
When I crash, I retreat,
I march to another beat.

I am part of all I hear and see,
They all make a home inside me.
When the moon is shining bright,
Darkness part, there is light.

I am but see what can be,
My hope is vast, like the sea.
I become a part of all I say,
Something no one can take away.
