I Am

I think that I am

      Dependable
      Emetic
      Prince (ss)
      Right
   GrEiving
      Scared
      Sad
      Embarrassed
      Depressed
     (Depressed)

 

 

At the same time I am

Worried
On time
Revved to go

Ready to stop
Irked
Energetic
Dying
(Worried)

 

 

In truth I am

 

Conflicted
On track
Named
Fearful
Loved
Irritable
Caring
Tired
Empathic
Done
(Conflicted)

 

 

       I am
I am nice and mean
I am loved and hated
I am healthy and sick
I am whole and missing
I am a child and a parent
I am young and old
I am happy and sad
I am everything and nothing
I am special and a mistake
I am wrong and right
I am alive and dying

 

Everything I want to be I am

 

Hopeful
Out of luck
Practiced
Easy
Fun
United
Loving
(Hopeful)

 


I am and always be me
I’ll be simple
I’ll be confusing
You’ll yourself
And I’ll be me


I was
I am
I’ll be


The author's comments:

I was thinking about who I was and who I want to be (you know, normal teenage questions) and everything I knew about myself seemed to contradict something else about me. So I wrote it all down in a strange acrostic, free verse style.
