One Word

By
A picture says a thousand words
But, what is it that says just one?
Is there a word that can summarize me?
A word like studious or fun?
A way to tell me who I am
Who I am in less words that two?
Now, that doesn't make much sense
How can I pick just one and be through?
I'm a very unique person, hence
I don't think I have the ability
To describe myself so easily
After all, it's hard to find one word
That doesn't spell conformity
When every word I decide to use
Has once been used before me
It's like having dynamite without a fuse
It just can't ever be done for me
I can't imagine a way for it to work
It's like trying to tell me that I'm not me
That it's enough to use one word
But, I don't see how that can be.

One word to describe all that is me?
Simply an Impossibility

One of my college essays ask me to write about one word that describes me, but I just can't think of one good word. This poem totally explains how I'm feeling.
