I Am

I Am

A Poem by laceyjane23
"

A simple short poem about the many things that make me who I am, whether you see them or not, every woman is a hero in my eyes so this one's for all the ladies!

"

I am a writer, though I've never published a book.

I am a model who's picture has never been took.

 

I am a singer who can't hit a note.

I am a leader, though I've never had a vote.

 

I am a wife, though I am not wed.

I am a maid who cannot make a bed.

 

I am a mother, though I have no child.

I am a rebel who is not wild.

 

I am a teacher who has never given a grade.

I am a cook who's cuisine is never homemade.

 

I am a dancer, though I've never been on stage.

I am an athlete, though in sports I never engage.

 

I am an actress who's never been on screen.

I am a greenskeeper's daughter who can't play on the green.

 

These are the things from the outside you may not see,

but all these little pieces are the puzzle that make me!

I have to admit that I was caught a bit off guard by this work. It had a sense of all the dreams of childhood, of what one might grow up to be. Yet, it was not a case that the dreams were lost. All those dreams remain, and in the end - regardless of what we do from 9 to 5; we are our dreams.

And the content is very different! A terrific piece of observation skill Lacey, I was wondering where you were going with this, then at the end Vavoom the puzzle fit...I loved the idea of telling it all in fantasy terms and bringing it home with reality...
Nice one...

What valuable content your poem contains! An extremely clever write focusing on the person themself and not what they can do. Women have many hats to wear and many expectations to fulfill. Here's to following the desires of our heart instead! I love your writing style and you really put a pleasing effort into making this unfold so well!

We are comprised of the pieces of our unlived aspirations and thats what is truly us as it reflects the hues of our mind and our inclinations.A lovely poem.
