I Am

I am the creator, the singer, the brightstar

I am the warrior who conquers the way.

I am the giver, the one who has come far

I am the ruler of night and of day.

I am the destroyer, the breaker, the shadow

I am the dreary dark desolation.

I am the blight, the witherer of meadow

I am the disease, the death of the nation.

I am the many, the few, and the one.

I am nothing, all, or in between.

I am the all and the some and the none.

I am the everything, all that can be seen.

A speck of sand on the earth's beach is me

The one who was bound, now the one who is free.
