Who I am

Who I am

A Poem by Sarahfenna
"

I am, I think, What you think, I am.

"

I look at myself and the opinion always changes

I am not myself unless I am someone else

I can not be me if I can not take a different shape

And I grow more perfectly imperfect with all the mistakes I make

the prying eyes of the judging watch me

every now and then I give them something to watch

Im a heretic, a lunatic, an indecent and invalid

How many days have I lived where I have found within

A moment when I had been happy to met the standards of others?

I am the black sheep, I am the invisible, I am the sought after

I am the invincible. I am the defeated. I am the shamed.

I am the victorious, I am the glorious, I am the humble and the brave.

I sit in peaceful spells for hours at a time,

with empty thoughts of summer days, and a single name occupy my mind

I become a whirlwind of furious rage, like an animal in a cage

I rip the pictures from my wall and move from bedroom to the hall

simply destroying, and then cleaning it up, until my heart has had enough

I am the young, I am naive, I am wistful, I am kind

I have lived five hundred years and seen the sunsets of my time

I am haunted by many ghosts, I am protected by one angel

I have met the heavenly host, but feel that i have lost his favor

Now I stand where all others certainty fails

and the devil calls me under

Now I stand where I have before, nervously knocking on heavens door

with only one question in my mind

Who am I?
