Who am I?
I am not mad but speak forth the words of truth and soberness.
I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.
I am the Lord’s.
I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
I am a stranger with thee.
I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed.
I am ordained a preacher.
I am not ashamed; but as we spake all things to you in truth, even so our boasting, is found a truth.
I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.
I am come to sacrifice unto the Lord: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice.

Christians often equate ‘I am’ with a declaration of deity, so I have respectfully taken the ‘I am’ statements littered throughout the Old and New Testaments and have developed them into a poem – professing monotheism, acknowledging their hate for those who preach monotheism and that which rhetorically answers their anti-monotheistic claims with their own scripture.
Verse 1: They may call me crazy, but the words I speak are the truth and meant to bring sobriety to their misguided/ drunken arguments.
Verse 2: I do this not for my own gain, but because God has commanded us monotheists to profess His monotheism.
Verse 3: I intend to give Christians understanding of God, true knowledge.
Verse 4: For I belong to the true God.
Verse 5: Like you, I am also a servant of God, a child of Prophet Adam (alayhi as salaam) and I call you to worship God and Him alone.
Verse 6: I am strange to you because I do not subscribe to your polytheism.
Verse 7: My words are meant to bring peace, but when I speak of monotheism it infuriates you Trinitarians.
Verse 8: I am not ashamed despite the insults you cast upon me, for I am certain of the one God I believe in.
Verse 9: I am ordained by God to spread His message.
Verse 10: I continue to not be ashamed, despite your mockery for I only boast of God’s truth.
Verse 11: I have certainty in God’s monotheism, despite you thinking of me misguided.
Verse 12: Just as I have sacrificed and submitted to the true God, I call you to submit to His glory and truth.
