That One Moment of Victory

EmmaAnalyst IJune 4, 2009

I am a mountain; both the foot and the summit.

I am a tiger, prowling my territory, ready to pounce as a predator.

I am the untamed wind, who blows down trees and howls through the night.

I am the sea—dangerous, mysterious, symbolic.

I am the most powerful man in the world, the one with control over the Big Red Button. Indeed, I am the Big Red Button, who can destroy the world with one yielding fall.

I am a pile of treasure, waiting to be claimed; I am the treasure hunter, waiting to claim.

I am the sun, the moon, the stars, giving light to those who seek it.

I am the one who preaches, and the one who is preached to.

I am both vision and reality, both metaphoric and literal.

I am the untouchable one; invincible; indomitable; all from that one moment of victory.

Then the illusion passes, and I am once again just a person.
