Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
~Oscar Wilde


I am from forts with my brother
And playing on trampolines.
I am from life as we know it,
And life as we don’t.

I am from late night dreams
And terrible nightmares.
I am from beasts and I am from
Angels.

I am from life,
And I am from death.
I am from strength
But I’m also from weakness.

I am from working together
And splitting apart.
I am from eating and laughing,
Yet tears make their way through.

I am from freedom
I am from Me.

I like it. I like the feeling I get from reading it, I feel strength. Wisdom. I feel that it has a lot of truth to it. Good job. :)

Would you read one of mine please?

I like the idea but u should make it more personal. It sounds too generic. Other than that good job.

Thank you so much! This was a spur of the moment kind of piece but I showed it to my English teacher and he told me it was really good so I posted it.

I like this piece. I think you did a great job comparing the enjoyable activities/concepts to the not so enjoyable activities/concepts. (: Good job!

I like it! I like how you included antithesis, aka "I am from life as we know it, and life as we don't."

I really enjoyed reading this poem.

I think you did a good job!

I dig it. I like the part where strength and weakness contradict eachother. This was well done.
