Who I am

Who I am

A Poem by Crazycatgirl_10

Kinda hard to describe this one.

I have depression
But that's not who I am

I have anxiety,
But that's not who I am

I have self-harm scars
But they aren't who I am

I've had anorexia
But that's not who I was

I've had a million different problems
But not one of them define me

Many different words describe what I'm like
But not one of them fully define me

Crazy. Unique. Loving. Energetic. Smart.
Beautiful. Strong. Amazing. Friendly. Real.

Not one world is who I fully am
Not one struggle define me

Who I am is me
A person who has lived and loved

A person who has had trials and sorrows
A person that has regrets

Each moment, each event has built me, shaped me
To make me who I am, a person not afraid to fall

But they have never defined me
Because all I'll ever be is me

And me is exactly who I want to be

Fantastic message with this poem. With everything wrong in the world, all the pain and struggle, only you define who you are.

To try and explain the unexplainable is a tough thing to do. So much buzzing around in your mind with no where to turn. People try and comfort but when you are alone it gets so hard.

This is a beautifully written poem.
