Stephen Doiron


I am what I am

I left my home many times and ways and I roamed the earth in silent pain.
I left the sea for the prairie grass and walked alone, free at last.
Never had a future, didn’t want my past. I was free at last, free at last.

I walked through the mountains in the rain and snow.
And the cold, moist air blew life in my soul.
And it made me whole, it made me whole.

I asked the sun and the stars and wind, who am I in the scheme of things.
Many years later, the answer it brings, the answer it brings.

I am a thought in the back of my mind, I am the shadow that tags behind.
I am a flower in the garden of yore, I am a child of God for sure.
I am a boy trapped inside a man, I am a grain in a sea of sand.
I am the earth on which I stand.
I am what I taste, I am what I see, I am what I feel, I am what is real.
I am alive, I am alive. And whatever else I am, it’s just until I die.
And then I am just whatever I was.
