This Is Me - Poem by Akachukwu Lekwauwa

I am still,
The one who looks at the caterpillar
And see a finished butterfly.
I am a scientist,
My Father is the Omniscientist;
I don't know much
But WE know it all.
I am the one who cast his bread
Upon the waters,
To receive it after many days.
This is me.
