Who Are You Today?
By Kristy Gherlone
I have been our Nation’s President and a street sign.
I have been the rain and a pile of dead leaves.
I have traveled through time and I have lived the life of a Nazi war criminal.
I have climbed mountains and have thrown myself into The Falls.
I have been witness to atrocities and miracles.
I have been a whupping boy and a psychic.
I have been autistic and an abused little girl.
I have been abandoned and I have been the neighborhood comedic hick.
I have been sought out by the government and killed by a prisoner.
I have killed myself over and over again, but I have lived through a million words and at least a hundred lives.
Today, I am the Pastor of a small Baptist church.
My life is exciting because I write it that way.
Who are you today? Where are you? What can you see? What will you be tomorrow?
