What Are You?

I am everything, I am nothing
The fear that makes your hair stand on edge
The courage that leads you into battle
The deepest despair in your heart
The greatest joy in your soul
I will kill all, I will save all
Those you love, those you hate
Those ahead, those behind
I am the day, I am the night
I am the oldest father, I am the youngest child
I hold the earth in one hand the sea with the other
And now I hold you

Author's Notes/Comments: 

More of my old stuff. I consider this my first great poem, I wrote it in 10th grade.
