Who I am


A poem by Steven Jennings

Inspired by Knowledge


I can be your worst enemy or your best friend.
Treat me right and I’ll stay to the end,
Do me wrong and I’m gone like the wind.

I’m a powerful source and I give you good days,
I give you several options and show you many ways.

I’m the reason you love, I’m the reason you fight,
I’m the reason you lay awake on those long sleepless nights.

I give you comfort when times are bad,
I throw fuel on the fire and drive you mad.

I’m the reason you act the way you do,
I provoke every thought inside of you.

I can make you argue and control what you say,
I’ll decide whether or not you have a good day.

I’m the strongest influence when it comes to you,
I control every little action that you do.

I’m that angel on your left and that devil on your right,
I’ll drag you through the darkness as I keep you from the light.

I hate it when you lie and ignore what I think,
You cause turmoil and conflict that puts us outta sync.

Stay true to yourself, be honest, be kind,
And I’ll stay true to you.

  1. I really love this, but I personally do not think the mind is so consciously sinister. I like to think of the mind more as a child: a bit aloof and misdirected at times, but always eager to help us. We just need to teach it how and be relentless and consistent with the direction we give it.

  2. True the mind does that. Let us gain peace as we surrender to Him who has only good plans for us – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. -JER 29:11

  3. I agree with your perspective 100%. But keep in mind, this poem was written in the midst of a sinister environment where sinister minds run ramped. However, to your point, many minds are eager to help its own being. For me, that means feeding the mind with relentless positive direction. From there, the law of attraction will pave the way for the universe to respond.

    PS-I like your mind. Thank you for sharing.
