I Am…

I am swift as the river and strong as the gale.
I wonder about the origins of those cliché phrases
We toss about in our streams of conversation

Train of thought


Kick the bucket



Spinning the wheels
I hear the heartbeat of humanity and pray, let it carry on.
I want to be more outgoing, to e x p a n d my horizons.
I see a future growing brighter with each new sunrise.
For I am swift as the river and strong as the gale.

I pretend to be beyond adolescence
In fear of the day I leave my comfort zone behind.
I feel t o r n between what seems right and what is right.
I touch that sparkling pot of gold
At the end of the rainbow of opportunity.
I worry too much over silly, little scenarios
That hardly have an impact on the world.
I cry when the s t r e s s is too much to bear,
The weight becoming too great.
Yet I remain swift as the river and strong as the gale.

I understand why life is not always the fairest at times.
I say if life blows you over




Dust yourself off




Rise back to your feet
I dream of the day all of my hard work will
Finally receive the due credit it deserves.
I try not to be too judgmental of others
For I know I have my own faults as well.
I am swift as the river and strong as the gale.


The author's comments:
This is just a poem I wrote for my english class. I am not afraid to admit what I struggle with, yet at times I am not too humble to tell the world what I do best. This is just one of those good old poems about myself. It is based off of the "I Am" poem format and so the format may look similar but the lines are completely my own.
