I walked the fields and deserts,
Swam the lakes and oceans,
Breathed in the crisp mountain air,
Strolled the floor of the grandest of canyons,
Gazed into the clear blue sky,
Survived the darkest of storms,
Seeking something I had already found.
It surrounded me always,
Was under every footstep,
Flowed gracefully around me with every stroke,
Was visible to me though I could not see,
Shone down upon me from the heavens,
Drenched me in every downpour.
It is in every cell, every vein of my being.
The Divine was always present,
Always enveloping me.
Though it has taken a lifetime,
I finally realize I AM.
