I am What I am

I am a child, yet an adult.
Innocent, yet guilty.
I am what I am.

I am a photographer though I have no camera.
An artist though I don't understand art.
I am what I am.

I am quiet but loud.
Confident but cautious.
I am what I am.

I am musical, yet tone deaf.
A tapestry, yet pixilated.
I am what I am.

I am a protestor though a spectator.
Concerned though apathetic.
I am what I am.

I am lazy but determined.
A perfectionist but a procrastinator.
I am what I am.

I am a writer, yet not good with words.
Creative, yet boring.
I am what I am.

I am independent though high maintenance.
A cactus though a rose.
I am what I am.

I am a hipster but a prep.
Original but mainstream.
I am what I am.

I am both a hypocrite and indecisive.
I am what I am.
