    I am that I am

    No negative association to I am

    When you say "I am something negative"

    That's vainity... this u must understand

    I am the truth

    I am the way

    And

    I am the light

    Associate I am to positive...

    Like Mohammed Ali...... I am the greatest....

    sho u right!

    I am love

    And

    I am peace

    And

    I am that

    And

    That I am

    I am not vain

    I will not talk in vain

    I am exactly what I say I am...

    Nothing wrong with appreciating all that you are, and leaving the negativity by the wayside. Flow on Poet of the Week!

    Thou shall not take the Lord
    Thy Gods' name in vain...

    this poem is not really about me...
    it really is about word play...

    when you say the words "I am".....
    the next word is associated to God

    so if you follow I am with something negative..
    it is exactly what u are....

    God is good
    I am good

    God is the light
    I am the light

    I feel angry..
    I feel tierd...
    I feel negative today...

    but I will never say..

    I am these things...

    Because God is good always!
