A god, I Am

With just a switch I create light
I create them in different shades
Yellow, blue, red and white
Though they be unlike the sun.

I am a god, I am
great-great things I wrought
The elements proud and strong
my Homage  they brought
Air, Iron, Mistress Earth
Water, Fire, and what have you
At my throne do all bow.

I make things but not life
I make creatures big and small
wrought of my hands,
my own designs
Alas! they breathe not, even all––
though I be a god
Ha! I laugh.

All of nature I hold
and in my fort they dwell
Yet my powers, they fail me
for still I be a mortal soul
and when death’d come, I can’t tell
My life’s gone and I am dust!

    Thanks very much for this wonderful poem personifying science as a God but also mortal. Unfortunately the contest rules stated use of the personification forms. This is still very creative, wonderful work and I enjoyed reading it. Thanks very much for entering my contest.
