I Am

Who are you?
They Ask
I am the hidden
of the hidden
of the hidden
of One.
I am the voice that is —
the most pure part of a soul
and yet
the most contaminated by darkness
I sing songs of love, hope, and joy
I whisper of fear, insecurity, and pain
I offer my tears and fragility
I hold your own tenderly close to me
I am the hidden
of the hidden
of the hidden
of One.
Simply embracing my humanity
