I am darkness

I am light

burning day and blackened night.

I am laughter

I am pain

I am sunshine

I am rain.

I am force unleashed in power,

I am the Tao within the flower.

I am spirit,

I am essence,

solid rock and effervescence,

unbound strength and burning fire,

satiate, yet raw desire,

deluging my energy

to integrate in synergy.

 

Am I loss or am I gain?

Open-eyed, do not constrain

the essence of my will to be:

all around you – this is me.

Earth will ground and air is still,

fires consume and waters fill.

The substance of identity:

wholly you, yet wholly me.

Lose yourself in holding fast

I am your first, I am your last.

Imbibe my being, touch my soul,

infuse my essence – be made whole.

Look in my eyes, begin to see

releasing “I” makes way for “we.”

 

We wind ourselves in spirit light

and burn on still where dark is bright,

by virtue of such energy

where is no mass or entropy.

We are divine

and we are man

preceding time when time began.

Coming going, lifetimes pass,

we peer into the looking glass

where eye meets eye and heart meets heart –

we have no end, we have no start.

We have been and always will,

we inhale time, hold motion still.

We pass beyond this roaring sea,

embracing immortality.

 

 

Here Sons of Grace and Reprobate

return to Source at heaven’s gate.

Here mighty men relinquish power,

confronted at their witching hour.

Here notions cease and tongues are spent.

Desire yields enlightenment.

Emotions wane and fade from sight,

discarded in the burning light.

 

When all is done we surely know

there is no come, there is no go.

Conjoined below, infused above,

when all is ended…

We are Love.

    Wow!!! I like this poem. When I read this, in my mind, happiness can’t control. Sweet in my ears, almost flow of my tears. When I heard the love, peace in me is a dove. The imagination created, in my mind I’m committed. Thank you Mr. Michael Forester, in this poem, I feel better.

  2. You Loved Us
    As God is above and everything is just below his feet, but for His love is so divine and grace overflows; He blew a life out of the molded clay and men brought to life to receive immeasurable love and mercy. We acted as his loving children yet betrayed Him in the end. Perhaps, that must be the last and so life must have never brought into light once again. But then again, God is love. He holds immense power over the uncertainty of life.
    We were saved from the Calvary of Death and sins were forgiven. No more boundaries hold us from within. Pleasure over pain, unforgiveness over compassion and death over life – we chose “us “over “Him.”
    ‘Till the end of time, God has been very patient. Love is indeed so powerful. For man was created to be good and life was made out of love – we are Love. -Jocelyn Serna, 20, Philippines

  3. This piece is very heartwarming. Love is so powerful that it produces peace and happiness amongst us. Truly, it endures all pain and accepts all things. It’s so nice to be reminded that everyone of us is significant.

    I also want to thank our Professor Jannet Pascual for endorsing this page allowing us to reads a lot of poem, like this.

  5. What’s so great in knowing we are loved unlimitedly by the Almighty One from above? Where his gentle caress is given with no measure.
    This piece is of great admonition for people who are seeking for the tranquility of life.
    I bet Mr. Forester should continue to this kind of write-ups where comfort is found. Knowing how chaotic our world is into right now.

    Sir Michael, I really love this poem! When I have read the title of this poem “Before Abraham”, I immediately thought about the Creator of the heavens and the earth. I wish that many students like me will read this because it has a deep meaning on how we exist in this world, how our life begun, where we came from and the origin of all things through the love of God. Thank you Sir Micheal! I will surely tell after I graduate in my bachelor’s degree in education, when I officially become a teacher, I will use this poem to share its deep meaning. Many students, adults, and youths today don’t like to talk about God nor to know God. They just do what they want to please themselves. But God’s love is so abundant for us who are reprobates. That’s why we need to turn back to God while there’s still time. God sent the solution in Genesis 3:15 and 3:21 and it is fulfilled in new testament in the book of Matthew 1:21 ” She will give birth to a son and you are to give him the name Jesus because He will save his people from their sins. John 14:6 And Jesus said, I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father except through me”.

    I hope sir Michael, you will continue writing like this for students like me.
