The author's comments:

The two writers devices I used were repetition  and foreshadowing. This poem is a litany poem. I used repetition by saying I am before every line. I used foreshadowing by stating what I am planning to do in the future and how all of my traits add up to this goal.
Since this is a litany poem, I used repetition on the start of every line. The start of the line is I am. After I would put I am, I would then state what specific traits I have or things that I do.
From then on, writing 20 lines was pretty simple.
Right now, I would consider myself a poet. From the beginning of the year, we have been doing poems. Every poem that I have done, I have seen myself improve. My favorite type of poems are rhyming poems and litany poems.
