Don't be a victim; be a titan.


I am a hippie, I am an artist, and I am a nerd.
I wonder if the tape will peel the paint off my wall.
I hear my future seducing me and history laughing at me.
I want to finish crocheting my friend’s hat.
I am a hippie, an artist, and a nerd.
I pretend I’m not listening, but I am.
I feel the pulsing ambition in my dreams.
I touch the art museum’s ancient furniture when no one is looking.
I worry about everything because I’m a Virgo.
I cry because I laugh too hard every single day of my life.
I am a hippie, an artist, and a nerd.
I understand I will change the world if I want to.
I dream every night yet don’t remember a thing.
I try to write a journal, but fiction is just more fun.
I hope my homemade rosewater doesn’t spill on my bed.
I am a hippie, an artist, and a nerd.
I desire to rule the world and know my fatal flaw is pride.
I am a hippie, I am an artist, and I am a nerd.
And my case cannot be helped.


The author's comments:
I had to write one of these things for school two years ago...and if you read that one and then read this one...you can hardly tell it's the same writer.
And for that I am grateful.

(bad joke)

Anyway, I know how original I am for writing the practically unheard of "I am" poem, but don't hold that against me.
It just looked like too much fun.
