Young & Carefree
I am.

Perfectly Imperfect
I am.

Wild yet vulnerable
I am.

Flawed yet human
I am.

Because of these,
Misunderstood
I am.

I like this a lot. I love the contradicting words in the same sentence and the whole meaning of the poem. Beautifully written.

Really nice, and so incredably true! I love how it's short and to the point, illistrating the message clearly. Great job! :)

Simple, yet truly deep and mindful. All poetry should be like that.
