    This is a musical setting of "I Am!", a poem by John Clare. It was written around 1845 while he was in a mental asylum. The poem addresses a separation he feels from others due to his illness, and a hope that heaven will bring him peace.

    I wrote the music on guitar, which is not common for me. Although I intend to perform this song on synthesizer, I decided to make a casual recording to document its original incarnation.

    Thanks to Darren Mills for contributing his growing recording expertise to this track.
