    I AM

    Awaiting my birth,
    waiting to be nurtured,
    waiting to grow into adulthood.
    I lay dormant,
    in the shadows
    I hide.
    You don’t realize that I am there.
    I only speak,
    when I have a desire to be seen,
    a desire to be heard,
    or
    a desire to express in words
    who I am.
    Which direction I plan to go
    is still a mystery.
    I have not yet experienced
    my full maturity.
    I realize, though,
    as a child of God,
    Agape,
    I have been born,
    unconditional,
    I am love.
