I am one. Complicated, but not sophisticated, practical, yet full of imagination. Set me loose upon a box of legos, watch me soar. I am one. Sensitive, to a fault, and loving it, knowing my fellow man deeply. Share with me your heart, I implore, I promise to handle with care. I am one. Insecure, but convinced of one thing, One which makes my future sure. Despite the worries of this life, A promise anchors me to truth. I am one. Fragile, pitiful, resilient, full of potential, prone to mistake and bouts with greatness My grave will sing of joy, yes, as my eyes now shine in life. For I am one, poor, insignificant creature, battling demons in a war already won, lifting my blade in the blood red sunset of a deed already done. Yes I am one, I am one, born of dust to which I must return, born of water in which I drown, and of the fire in which I burn. I am one. One whom love has claimed, And then renamed, whom the Potter molds, and then reflames. A blood red coat to seal my white, the cup of grace to calm my night. Captivated, surely I, I am one.

i also love the repetition. its not annoying like a lot of repetition in songs or rhyming peoms. it works just perfectly to keep the the main line flowing throughout the piece and then ending it.

This is kind of like an introduction poem, no? @MyNameisSimeon What a great idea!!

Thanks for your feeback! It is indeed an introduction. I don't think I meant it to be when I started, but the first line set the mode and it just went from there. I don't always know my topic, but talking about yourself does seem a great way to join a community. This, however, was merely happenstance in my case.

very nice intro.. @MyNameisSimeon. giving yourself a reading that shows a side of you that's confidence when others enjoy reading it and tripping upon it at a spur of the moment shows its straight from the depths of who you are.. that's close same place my mind wanders at times ha.. very cool
