Who am I

Who am I

A Poem by Zoë

In french and english


Who was I?

"I was nothing more than a stressed out youth who panics"

Something that society though it could push around.

But now I see that must change

Because I am something greater than a youth

I am the future, and the future is me.

This society cannot control me

"You mistake me for a slave"

But no, I am spectacular.

I can do anything I want, no matter how crazy

Because "I let chance knock on my door."

I could be an author or an astronaut

A scholar or a musician

The President, a librarian, or a surgeon.

My possibilities are endless as my dreams,

If my society only cared.

Who was I?

I was just a child, but now I’m the future

And there’s no one who can stop me

From achieving what I want, but,

Who am I?

Qui étais-je?

“J’ai toujours été qu’un jeune stressé qui panique”

Quelque chose que la société si elle pouvait pousser.

Mais maintenant je vois cela doit changer

Parce que je suis quelque chose de plus qu'un jeune

Je suis la futur, et la futur est moi.

Cette société ne peut pas me controller

“Vous m’avez pris pour un esclave”

Mais non, je suis spectaculaire.

Je peux faire ce que je veux, peu importe comment fou

Parce que “je laisse le hazard frapper à ma porte”.

Je pourrais être un auteur ou un astronaute

Un savant ou un musicien

Le Président, un bibliothécaire ou un chirurgien.

Mes possibilités sont infinies que mes rêves,

Si seulement ma société se souciait.

Qui étais-je?

J'était juste un enfant, mais maintenant je suis la futur

Et il n'y a personne qui peut me arrêter

De réaliser ce que je veux, mais

Qui suis-je?

Author's Note

My french isn't that fantastic, but this was a project for my french class so I figured I should post it in the language I wrote it for. Sorry if it sucks.

Other than that, tell me what you think :)

I've been interested in writing for years, although I only recently got serious about it. As a writer who's just starting off I would love for people to take the time to review my work and tell me how.. more..
