Who Am I ?

Who am I ?

Am I the girl across the street with the street with the long golden hair?

Or the tall green grass that sway without care?

Mabey I'm the bright shimmering sun thats signal's to the world a new day has just begun,

Who am I ?

Could I be a bright blue butterfly flowing with the wind,

That sometime's land softly on my skin?

Mabay I'm the shadow's that waver in and out of sight,

Or a small dew drop that glisten's in the light,

Who am I ?

I am original.

I am me.

I am undefined.

To shine for all the world to see!!

The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by the fact that so many people children and adult's alike are pressured into being someone else instead of themselves. As I too was a victim of changing my self image and behavior just to try to fit in with the other kid's my age.

But I have learned to love myself and appreciate my individuality, and I hope my poem give's other teens my age the courage to stand out and having a rocking good time doing it !!!!!
