I Am – Fern G. Z. Carr

I Am

I am the stars,
the wind, a crystal,
a blade of grass,
a feather.
I am entropy –
a random assortment
of oxygen, carbon,
hydrogen, nitrogen
and trace elements
in a body
that happens to exist
at this point in time,
its individuality
organically interconnected
to the universal;
I am a body that possesses
limited cognition –
an integral
but trivial speck
of infinity.
I am a part of the universe.
I am the universe.
I exist. I am.
