Hello Sarah! Look at it from a cosmic perspective...what have you come here on earth to do with your life? I made a vow to myself when I was about 15 years old that I would be a writer. I didn't promise the universe that I would be a good writer;... See Elizabeth’s answer.

The trees, having loved me from a distance throughout spring and summer with their full crowns, reach out in autumn with intimate love on my feet. When I walk upon the fallen leaves, I feel the kisses on my feet. When I pick a fallen leaf, I feel a lover's hand. I go home feeling loved and wanted.

“Being poor is neither history nor permanent but a status. Writers who begin with this sentence “X is a poorest country in the world,” to describe any African country are lacking intelligence. How would they feel if we turned the tables and used sentences that portray historical offenses committed to other countries? I bet nobody would like to read, “X is a country that killed millions of Y during Z’s regime.”

Terry Carter Gloria's poem "Who am I?" is as rich with metaphors of her multi-cultural experience as it is of her native African sensitivity. Her approach is simple and direct with a poignant and personal sincerity. I look forward to seeing and reading more of her writing!
