"The opposite of love isn't hate, its indifference."

I am what I am.
I am a girl with a dream,
constantly writing down my ever changing thoughts.
I am not yet an adult,
a blank page,
waiting for my life story that has yet to be written.
I am hearts broken,
and hearts mended.
Memories long forgotten,
slowly resurfacing.
I am fake smiles
mixed with real ones.
Family who cares so much,
it's annoying.
Friends who could care more,
if that's not too much to ask.
I am a bird in the air,
going where the wind takes me.
A tree without roots.
The drop of water,
that started the wave.
I am a high school student,
trying so hard to say no,
to not break under pressure.
A college bound girl,
A teen looking for purpose in life.
I am what I am.
I am who I am.
I am me, and I wouldn't change it for anything.

We have a project in English, a I Am What I Am essay, and I got an idea for a poem. I hope its not too bad, I just pulled this off the top of my head.
