A Face and a Name

the greatest mistake science ever taught me

was to make me think I am in the universe

that I am confined in dusts

an image of billions,

lost in the mirror of my own self

like a tarred road that ends in dust;

they called me nothing but dusts.

but, they are wrong!

I am the image, I am the dust,

I am the burnt and the aftermath

the universe is in me

I have the universe in my bone

I am the endless glory of the mornings

I am the beautiful stars that dine at night

I am the meteors falling

I am the vapours rising


When I look at my skin I don’t see black or white or brown?

No! I don’t see that, I see the sun, not a skin

I see fire all over me, I see greatness.

I AM the one that grows the cloud

I AM the one that weeds the sky

to bloom, I don’t need the sun

I AM the sun on sunless days

to sprout, I don’t need the waters

I am the waters that gives life to the sea.

I AM the I AM

I AM who I choose to be….

I AM….. the greatest. Yes, I AM.

I am
