    I am nothing
    but the call beyond the mountains
    of the motherland
    The echo of the sea
    I am no one
    but the river rushing
    hushing my mortality with tales of time
    Change is my name
    I blush twilight and recall eternity
    I am nobody
    and the uncovered head blessing the rain
    I am oblivion
    I am the face I've never seen
    the dust that rasps the voice I've never heard
    tongues I scarcely understand
    I am a dream
    and the slumber that wakes thousands of miles away
    I am the restless eyes that gaze at dust posing as horizon-al haze
    I am the awareness of continuity
    I am trouble in peace
    calm in calamity
    I am desert flutes and jungle drums
    I am impossible
    as flesh without desire
    Thoughts without wonder
    I am cipher
    beyond cosmic dictation
    Extra-dimensional bagatelle
    the topic between space and time
    the disagreement between was and is
    I am fact beyond ignorance
    eons of agony and bliss spawning life
    and the system of chaos
    I am nothing
    but the remnant of all I don't know
    Evidence of my history

    "NOTHING" is one helluva poem.

    I enjoyed its rhythm and its self awareness.
