I Am Who I Am Because I Am

I Am The Waves In The Ocean And The Roots Of The Trees. 

I am Wind and Thunder and Rain.

I am the image of my father; Kemet.

I am Soil and Breath and Soul.

I am Africa personified.

“I am Wind, and Thunder, and Rain.”

In the way I walk

The way I talk

The weight in my stride and the grace in my glide.

私は形のない午前 (I am formless)

Colorless

Endless

Steady.

I am pain

Healing

Scars and forgiving

A new beginning.

I am the one left behind

Often forgotten

日の後ろに輝く星(The star that shines behind the sun.)

I am music without a tune and a hum with no melody

I am the steady boom of a drum.

I am the blue studded wail of the saxophone…

And the lingering blare of the trombone.

 

I am the waves in the ocean and the roots of the trees.

 I am Wind and Thunder and Rain….
