I Am.

I am a pasted-together scrapbook of memories, tears, and laughter
I am a quick prayer for a miracle right before a test I didn’t study for
I am Coldplay, OneRepublic, and Goo Goo Dolls
I am a Starbucks white chocolate mocha on a freezing December day
I am a Potterhead, a Narnian, and a hobbit
I am unwritten (can’t read my mind, I’m undefined)
I am an awkward caterpillar still waiting for her wings to grow in
I am a Pinterest addict
I am a husky, a cowboy, a cougar, and a panther
I am tripping and falling on flat surfaces all the time
I am still crying over fictional characters
I am a creator, a changer, a dreamer, and a believer
I am Disney songs at the top of my lungs
I am an optimistic realist
I am down-to-earth indie folk and 90s dance pop at the same time
I am that person who keeps laughing after everyone else has stopped
I am a cheesy love letter
I am an old Target backpack in a sea of Vera Bradley
I am a giant spoonful of Nutella at 3 AM because I’ve lost control of life
I am a hopeful wish on a shooting star
I am plug-the-earbuds-in-and-drown-the-world-out time
I am the poet of my life
But I am more than a poem
