"I entered this world to see the sun..."

 Next Poem          

I entered this world to see the sun
And the blue horizon.
I entered this world to see the sun
And the towering mountains.

I entered this world to see the ocean
And the bright array of vales.
I encompassed worlds in a single glance
I am master of all I survey.

I triumphed over cold oblivion
To create my dream.
In each moment I stream with revelation,
And I always sing.

My dream was born through suffering,
But I am loved for that.
Who can rival the strength of my song?
No one, no one.

I entered this world to see the sun.
And if the day should dim,
I will sing...I will sing of the sun
Until my dying hour!
