I Am

I am blind,

Yet I can see.

I am deaf,

Yet I can hear.

I am mute,

Yet I can speak.

I am the dark,

And yet I am the light.

I am forgotten,

Yet I am remembered.

I am a peasant,

Yet I am a King.

I am nothing,

Yet, I am everything!

 


 

Original version:

I am blind,

Yet I can see.

I am deaf,

Yet I can hear.

I am mute,

Yet I can speak.

I have nothing,

Yet I have everything.

I am a peasant,

Yet I am a King.

 


Author’s Note:

When I originally wrote this, I felt like nothing.  However, this piece is not about me.  Though I use the words “I am”, I wasn’t talking about myself.  Perhaps I’m talking about someone or something.  Perhaps it is a riddle.

What do you think?

  1. What a difference one change in a line can make.

    I have to say, I’m not sure. Whenever an author writes something, it isn’t always wise to think that the who mentioned in the writing is the author or not.
