This Is Me - Poem by Mawunyo Adjei

This is me; this is what I do best

Sit me down to write scripts for a film

and I'll waste your paper and ink

Ask me to speak to an audience about

hard work and I'll put them to sleep

Put me on stage as a comedian,

and the audience will strangle you for

their money back

Enroll me in a weight-lifting club and

you might be imprisoned for murder

Hire me as a bank teller and you might

arrive at work to meet a very long queue

in front of my counter, not because I'm

providing a very great service but

because I'm in a deep sleep

However, sit me down ones again

behind a beautiful natural scenery with

a paper and pen

That paper and pen will be one day

auctioned for lots of money because

through it was the world's most inspirational poetry produced

This is me; this is what I do best.
