Who am I?

Who am I?

My head knocks against the stars.
My feet are on the hilltops.
My finger-tips are in the valleys and shores of
Universal life.
Down in the sounding foam of primal things I
Reach my hands and play with pebbles of
Destiny.
I have been to hell and back many times.
I know all about heaven, for I have talked with God.
I dabble in the blood and guts of the terrible.
I know the passionate seizure of beauty
And the marvelous rebellion of man at all signs
Reading “Keep Off.”

My name is Truth and I am the most elusive captive
In the universe.



Poem Who am I? - Carl Sandburg
