in a different world

Written by: John Loving III

what if this was a different world
in a different time. a different diminsion
a different rhyme, a different reality 
a different dream, a different country
a different scene, a different feeling 
a different theme, a different crime 
a different deed, a different God 
a different creed. what if
all these variables
served to make one thing
and wars and making love
all part of the very same scheme
when nature joins with the classics
to make one scream. and that scream 
what would it be? what would it be?
it would be what God still screams
I AM,I AM, I AM AND I AM!
i am a woman and i am a man
i am a sojourner in a distant land
from where i have come i have traveled far
from just an ideal, from just a star
from a philosophy, from a dream
from a book, from a king
from a necessity, and even greed
from eipihany, from a seed
from heaven, and from hell
from science and magical spell
I AM I AM AND I STILL AM! 
from the powers that be, listen to me.
from traditions forging principalities
from dominions given men and angels
from the throne that see's from every angle
to man, to whom the angels bow
to the beast, fish and fowl
to all the angels that God did allow
I AM THAT I AM THAT I AM!
