I Am

by Bilal Berthony
AKA Brooklyn Poet

I remember things
that never happened.
I see things
that donít exist.
Iím the sanest person
also the craziest

I scream at the top of my lungs
without making a sound
Iím the gamut of emotions
encased in supple brown

I illustrate with words
more precious than diamonds 
more precious than pearls
Iím a painter of universes
so you can read between my worlds.

I am.......
            a writer.
