    who am i?

    i am the healer of your mind,
    your body and spirit
    i live in the meadow of serenity
    walking barefoot among
    the flowers so that i can blend
    with the strength of nature;

    my pen was created when GOD
    dipped HIS hand into the
    sand and breathed the ink of life
    into its end and allowed
    me to be the curator of your joy...

    i am the one you seek when
    you kneel down to pray
    i am the answer no one wants
    yet all seek only to find
    that the gifts i possess were
    only entrusted to me to
    pour into the hearts of others;

    i am a vessel full of AGAPE love
    pouring out constantly
    but never empty for the task is
    too great to grow weary;
    I loved to heal and healed to love
    when life quieted my voice
    and now i stand stronger as i plant
    good seed in fertile soil;

    when you cry, i am sent...
    when you find joy, i move on
    when you call, i appear
    and when you find peace, i disappear

    I am the rebound to broken hearts,
    the doorway to strength
    i am the mender of broken spirits
    and a guide to true love
    i am the sacrificial lamb for your joy
    and the nights i cry are
    for those who think they cry alone
    i walk with obedience
    through the fire and the storms just
    so that you can know
    that your walk is not done alone;

    Who am I?

    I am the healer
    of your mind, body and spirit
    called from the second book
    of Ezekiel and named dnommo...

    You'd better say it brother. I am completely in awe of your talent.
    Did you just come up with that?
