I Am
by Satsang

Well, I no longer fear the unknown
'Cause I know what I am here for
I keep on troddin' on my own path
Keep on learnin' from my present and past, yeah
Well, I no longer need validation
'Cause my story is long and I'm patient
I know that I have lessons to learn
Keep my eyes open, each step I earn, yeah
No need for me to feel alone
'Cause I got a place that I call home
Every single road traveled, every single new place
I come back home, they accept me with grace, yeah
Well, I know that I was meant to be here
And I know that I was born into fear
But I will stand tall in the lion's den
'Cause I know in my heart I am one of them
That there are lies in the facets of everything that we see
That are telling us to be scared, when all we ever are is free
I'm letting go of the things that don't serve me no more
'Cause I am holy, and sacred
And righteous, and true, and I deserve to be here
And so do you
Said, "I deserve to be here"
But I'm in a constant transition, constantly changing vision
Story never certain, there is always a revision to be made
Well, I think about the demons I have slayed
I am not afraid of confrontation in vain
To the people that seek evil, not as peaceful as I look
But a warrior at heart, so precaution must be took
Well I'm trying to give in to the lessons that will soften
My ways and means are changing, 'cause I talk to spirit often
Tell me to stay sharp, tell me to stay present
Tell me to ignore the fools and focus on ascent
Well, I said, "I will starve my ego, and I will remain strong
I will make mistakes, and I will often be wrong"
Well, I'm perfectly imperfect, and I'm only here to learn
And all the evil on the path gets burned
I said, "I'm perfectly imperfect, and I'm only here to learn
And all the evil on the path gets burned"
That there are lies in the facets of everything that we see
That are telling us to be scared, when all we ever are is free
I'm letting go of the things that don't serve me no more
'Cause I am holy, and sacred
And righteous, and true, and I deserve to be here
And so do you
The pressure always comes from the outside
Try not to let it in where I reside
Well, this is my heart, my home
My choice, my love, my life, my path, my voice, yeah
Within my heart grow with each step
Stand firm in where the path goes next
Well, I know that where it goes is where I need to be
The more lessons rained down, more blessings I see, hey
See there are lies in the facets of everything that we see
That are telling us to be scared, when all we ever are is free
I'm letting go of the things that don't serve me no more
'Cause I am holy, and sacred
And righteous, and true, and I deserve to be here
And so do you

    1. The album was released in 2016 (I think), but I don’t know when the song was written. Thanks for visiting, Dee. 🙂
