Who Am I - A Poem

Who am I when I am

Feeling Powerless?

Feeling Penniless?

Feeling Pointless?

Who am I, Sir?

I am ME, that is who I am!

 

I am a Writer.

The same Writer who wrote

When times were fair

That same Writer that was there

Is within me now -

(Though full of care.)

I write, therefore I am;

I write because I (still) can.

 

Who am I when I am

Feeling Powerless?

Feeling Penniless?

Feeling Pointless?

Who am I, Ma’am?

I am ME, that is who I am!

I am a Master of Imagination.

With the power of thought

I create new worlds

And populate them with kind and thoughtful folks;

Folks, who do not rip each other off

Nor do they rip one another apart.

A Kingdom of Kindness, I create

And hope to live there

Before it becomes too late.

 

Who am I when I am

Feeling Powerless?

Feeling Penniless?

Feeling Pointless?

Who am I, Dear Listener?

I am ME, that is who I am!

I am never powerless...
