I am a being

I am a being
A person of some substance
I think
I dream
I speak
And I do what I can

I am a being
A thing of consciousness
I hope
I love
I hate
And I avoid what I can

I am a being
A creature of the universe
I want
I need
I own
And I hide when I can

I am a being
A spirit of the woods
I build
I sing
I dance
And I create what I can

I am a being
A life force to behold
I eat
I drink
I breathe
And I destroy what I can

I am a being
of substance
of consciousness

I am a being
of the universe
of the world

I am a being
A life force to behold

I am a being
Just a being
