I Am Nobody
by Jackie Johnson  
9/09/2012 / Poetry

I do not possess the steady hands of a surgeon,
Nor the great mind of a philosopher.
I do not own the true arm of an athlete,
Nor the lilting voice of a singer.
I do not maintain the charismatic leadership of a politician,
Nor the commanding presence of an actor.
I do not hold the perfect balance of a gymnast,
Nor the unfailing timing of a comedian.
I do not boast the historic strategies of a general,
Nor the creative palette of a chef.

In this earthly world,
I am bland and colorless.
Too average in a world obsessed with heroes.
Quiet, common, a nobody.

But here is a secret I possess
That keeps me impervious to this nothingness.
Jesus knows my name.

Jackie Johnson, a special education teacher, has a passion for writing. She has published poetry in Pen It! Magazine, a regular contributor to Cross Currents newsletter and has been invited to read her poetry in various venues. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband, three children, two dogs, two parakeets, a leopard gecko, and several fish.
