A Poem on the Mystery of Self & Nature

I am the shadow & the light.

In the depths of the forest,
I find my true identity,
As I wander the paths less traveled,
I am shrouded in mystery.

I am the wind that rustles the leaves,
I am the shadow that dances in the light,
I am the whisper that carries on the breeze,
I am a part of the natural world.

In the depths of the ocean,
I discover my purpose,
As I dive into the unknown,
I am surrounded by mystery.

I am the current that flows beneath the waves,
I am the creature that lurks in the deep,
I am the treasure that lies hidden beneath the sand,
I am a part of the natural world.

Nature is my teacher, My guide, and my inspiration,
And in its embrace, I am shrouded in mystery,
I am full of wonder,
And I am truly myself
