Who Am I?


In this world of words
Woes, purpose yet so cold
In this world so empty
Yet of gold.

Who i am?
A soul defined
From that little small tribe
known as kagoma,
A place i reside.

I am a man, a son, a brother
A friend and soon to be a father,
I am a Christian and i serve my God well
Who am i?
Just read the lines again.

Presumption doesn’t take you far
It only makes you fat with pride
And with time treats you like a child.
Who am i?
Just call me the lover of your life.

Who am i?
Never lonely, always cheering soul
Loves poetry, music and food also.
Who am i?
I am that soul that refuses to get cold.

    Sharon what a lovely poem. Amazing! Presumption don't take you far - it only makes you fat with pride. That's just awesome and it's so true. I'm a christian myself. By christian I mean I'm not religious but a follower of christ. You know what I mean. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
