Because I Know

I Want to Be...

I want to be

As courageous as rain

With the tenacity to fall

Because I know

No matter where I land

I will bring life to all

Even at the expense of my own


I want to be

As strong as wind

With a force that will never yield

Because I know

No matter where I stand

I will live my life as a shield

For those who stand behind me


I want to be

As soft as snow

With a piercing icy chill

Because I know

No matter how cold I am

I will always bring goodwill

And warmth to those who see me


I want to be

As kind as sun

With its strong, vivacious rays

Because I know

No matter how often I leave

I will be the one that brightens their days

The one they wish will never go


I want to be

As wise as moon

With its quiet, knowing gaze

Because I know

No matter how often I’m overlooked

I am the one that actually stays

The one who sees it all


Because I know

No matter how much we wish

We can’t be all

That we want to be

That we must be content

With who we already are

Who we were created to be
