The first time I read something that Tomi wrote, I was blown away. It’s ridiculous how good he is. I love his work and I respect him as a person. This is Tomi
WHO AM I?
I am like the pronoun ‘I’.
I stand by myself in a world of ‘we’ and ‘them’.
But I love ‘we’ and ‘them’. I love us.
I am a force to be reckoned with in some of my daydreams;
In most of them, I am a fickle man-child trying to conquer fear.
Fear for tomorrow’s uncertainty, fear of public speaking,
Fear of unfulfilled expectations,
And ultimately, the fear of being afraid.
I am the one who awakens when the sun rises
And flirts with insomnia when the sun sets.
I am the giddy, optimistic, confused,
Often melancholic, sometimes doubtful,
Loved by Jesus, faith-consumed person.
I am less than what you think and greater than what I think.
In every description of myself, ‘I am’ is constant.
I am; that is what I am;
After ‘am’ is a variety of greatness and insecurities too many to mention,
Too complex to divulge.
My odyssey is to discover who I am.
I AM TOMI.
