I am the Universe, I say to you.
I am all that with touch of blue
I am the Northern wind at night
I am the brightest ray of light.
I was, I am, I'll always be
I am the spirit free.

"You might as well just be dust. Sweep up dust and it might contain a fragment of Caesar or Cleopatra, anybody,one day it might be me, but that is not immortality, that is just dust."
Francis Bacon.

Quite egocentric, but no doubt reflects many people's philosophy today.

That aside, great flow your imagery, from universe to blue, to's a great cascade, but it will be even better if you expand upon that. Perhaps add a few lines/words of details.

The general scope is very nice.

I don't find the poem egocentric at all. It speaks to me instead of the will for freedom in a world that is desgned for restricting it and how we are all one and the same - the stone is the bird, the bird is the sea, the sea is me.
I love it. You use beautiful imagery.
