We should desire to help others

I Am

I am life, desire
I wonder how heavy hearts can sing
I hear them screeching
I see them shriveling
I want to shine on them light
I am life, desire

I pretend that the storm clouds make me smile
I feel pain but concentrate on pleasure
I touch gently the lives of others
I worry they live in shadows
I cry only for the tormented souls, not for problems
I am life. I am desire.

I understand that evil lurks in every corner
I say to keep on marching, fires will die
I dream of happiness on all ages and races
I try to dispose of my own storm clouds
I hope to see love rise
I am life, desire.

I like this one! These strong statements from an I. The I here feels refreshed and invigorated.
