I am One

I am one
And can't do much but
I can see and I can move
I can speak and I can feel


I am one
Solitary soul with no
Political power or
Great beauty to speak of


But I have words
Some of compassion
Some of comfort
But all of love


I am one
But one alone can light the stars

Yes, indeed. We are all one part of the oneness, each as important and vital as the other.
This is lovely!

I like this very much. And I too believe that one alone can light the stars. If only more of us believed in ourselves that much, think how quickly the world would change!

Yes, one alone can light the stars. Beautiful. What's that saying "Alone really means All One" ?

I swear I just heard James Taylor tuning his guitar.

This was beautiful! Yes, and we each have to make our little light shine~

I like the way you lead from a modest view of yourself to 'lighting the stars'. I'm sure you do just that.

Simply beautiful. Well penned. We all need the sort of quiet confidence evident in your lovely poem.

As The Beatles once sang, "Love is all you need."

Laura, this is beautiful. There is power in just one person doing the right thing.
