Who Am I


“Who Am I”
Who am I, I ask once more.
Although, I have asked this once before.
I am a women, who is proud and strong.
I am fearless, though my journey has been long.
I am an infant who lives in fear.
I am a stranger to those who are near.
I am a child who has lost all she once held close.
I am an addict who had to take one more dose.
Who am I, I ask once more.

Who am I, I ask once more.
Although, I have asked this once before.
I am teacher for those who will listen.
I am a work of art, see me as I brightly glisten.
I am dangerous, but I am also kind.
I am an old soul who is very hard to find.
I am a lover who has felt my heartbreak.
I am the earth as she begins to quake.
Who am I, I ask once more.

Who am I, I ask once more.
Although, I have asked this once before.
I am heartache, with a smile at the end.
I am empire, or so I pretend.
I am a survivor, I have been so broken.
I am no longer afraid, I am profoundly outspoken.
I am a forest, so thick with so much to hide.
I am a mother, beaming with motherly pride.
Who am I, I ask once more.

Who am I, I ask once more.
Although I have asked this once before.
I am a victim, by touch and by soul.
I am healing steadily, someday I will be whole.
I am demanding, this life is all mine.
I am impatient, I am tired of wasting my time.
I am distracted, by the pain I have felt.
I am growing, from the life I was forcibly dealt.
Who am I, I ask once more.

Who am I, I ask once more.
Although I have asked this once before.
I am my future, I can see it all clearly now.
I am fearful, but I will make it in this world somehow.
I am a student, I am learning every single day.
I am a human, who will makes mistakes along the way.
I am done asking who I may or may not be.
I am who I am, and that person is me.
