I Am by Meriam Hamidi

Meriam Hamidi

I am imaginable. I am she who loves the view of rivers.

I see trees and their falling leaves,

I hear birds cheering along,

I want to travel every corner of this amazing world,

I wonder what would happen on Judgement Day.

I am imaginable.


I pretend that I own the full rivers and landscapes.

I feel the Lord coming closer to me.

I touch the sun and the clouds with my soul.

I worry about life; the future and its miseries.

I cry for all those who are killed for no reason.

I am imaginable.
