I am a Poet

January 13, 2008
By Peyton Coughlin, Fort Worth, TX

I am a poet, writing of my pain.
I am a person, living in shame.
I am a daughter, hiding my depression.
I am a sister, making an impression.
I am your bestfriend, sitting on the side.
I am seeker, who just wants to hide.
I am the romantic, hoping you are for me.
I am a prisoner, longing to be free.
I am the girl, waiting for you.
I am the dream, that no one will pursue
I am a mistake, hoping to be corrected.
I am confused, needing to be directed.
I am a wound, that will never heal.
I am the secret, which you will never reveal.
