Who Am I? - Poem by Kelvin Owusu

I am all that is taken for granted
the essence of beauty and destruction
the fall of autumn leaves
lay dormant in winter and bloom in spring

I am the master of terraforming
The infinite colours in and after the rain
I am all that is and that is not inhabited
I am history, earthly, shelter an ageless wonder

I am all that is green on this earth
the wonders of the forest
the cause of natural disasters
I am what you abuse and pollute


Poet's Notes about The Poem

wrote this piece after reading (Everything I Am - Gwenevere Cornwell) my piece not as good as her's but it was fun my own, if you have time search her up

    Interesting subject for the theme title. I too have written one with this title, but I have come to it from a completely different angle. Mine of this subject is entitled - Ode to the Earth - please read and you may chuckle.

    Great wake-up call, as if we need one, to think about the sort of natural enviroment we want our grandchildren to inherit. Excellent. (Report)Reply

    I love this poem. It has beautiful imagery. I get the feeling of mother earth sending a message to everyone. Letting them know how cruel they can be to such a beautiful phenomenon. G (Report)Reply

    Nothing is better at antithesis than nature itself. Ethically, you have given yourself away to nature and the diction is peculiarly exact and concise. From start to finish, the imagery is beautifully beautiful. Of your poems, thus far, here comes the best if my evaluation is anything to go by. (Report)Reply
