Who am I

September 30, 2008
By Rachel Hinton, Plainfield, IL

Who am I

I know no longer what I am
What I'm doing here
Or where I stand

Who am I

I surely wish I knew
Everyone seems to know something about me
Although I hope some aren't true.

Who am I

Shall I live forever in doubt
Will I finally understand myself
Or leave before I find what I'm about

Who am I

A tired teenager?
That's for sure
But with each answered question
I end up having more.

The author's comments:
My inspiration,a recuring one I get,is what am I in this world,what will I ever accomplish.Is what I want to do really for me.Am I truly something special?I know there are things about me that I won't know until I'm older but I truly don't know what I am.

Even though I am the author of this poem, if any of you people reading this feel the same way, don't worry your not alone.
