I Am Green

A Poem by Storm
"

Inspired by the color contest

"

I am nature in all its splendor

From the leaves of tall trees

To the blades emerging from the ground

I am the oxygen to the living

 

I am the ability to conceive

The opportunity for the young to thrive in the womb

The growth of the population

I am fertility in all its miracles

 

I am your cure

The medicine that mends you

The spirit that replenishes you

I am the healer of the universe

 

But alas, with the light there is always darkness

 

I am the opposite of healing

The reason you feel weak

The cause of your death

I am sickness in all its devastation

 

I am the sixth deadly sin

Jealousy at its worst

A black hole of discontentment

I am envy and I want what you have

 

I am your wants, more than your needs

Too much is never enough

No end to the lengths one will go for desire

I am greed and I am hungry for more

I've always thought green as not the best color until recently, and your poem perfectly captured the color! I love how you captured the bad side and the good side. The darker turn the poem takes is magnificent and I just adore this poem. When I read this one, I wanted to decide the winners of the contest right away, haha! For sure, one of my favorite poems I've ever, ever read.

Beautifully written I got a Zen feeling talks of nature and being the sun, the wind, the nights covering the bones with meanings and desperate searches for truth. I love it keep writing Sincerely your friend in writing and life.
