What I am

Infinitely finite
Bearer of a luminous spark
Scion of the sun
Who made home for time

I’m god

Deified, mortal
Eternal, ephemeral
Transcending self, within self
Adopted, a slave
Royalty, a serf

I’m god

God became man
Men become gods
I’m god.

 

‘What I am’ is part of Blazing Moon, a collection of poems, by Nwachukwu Egbunike to be published next year by Feathers and Ink.
