Proud To Be Me

May 12, 2010
Im proud to be me
Im proud to be myself
To be able to run dance sing
To be able to look at the stars
And write about their cold light

Im proud to be me
When I can act
And cry, laugh, speak

Im proud to be me
When I realize
I come from an amazing family
Filled with history
When I find myself
Surrounded by God’s green earth

Im proud to be me
When I can hear
The flurry of bird song
In the mountains
And yes

Im proud to be me
Because I have 6 billion voices
That reach to the ghoastly echos
Of time eternal

I really liked this poem. You have a great sense of gratitude and pride about your situation, which is admirable. I am proud to be me also! I think many people on the Earth have got it pretty good.
