I Am

I Am

A Poem by Carolann Dowsett

I am Vulnerable 
Broken
Strong and Fearless 
I am all things to all people 
Yet I belong to none 
I am Elusive 
Unknown 
A whisper of things to come
I am a Warrior 
In an endless war
Victorious 
Wounded
Battle weary 
The scars of life remain visible on my soul 
I am soft and gentle 
Loving and kind
Immovable 
Full of Light 
I am Passionate 
Longing 
Tactile and Sensitive 
I am Unbreakable 
Willful
Determined
I am a woman 
A little girl 
A spiritual being 
I am Pure 
Renewed 
Refreshed 
Laughter and Joy
Tears and Sorrow 
I am Deep 
Intelligent 
Serious yet Fun
I am Childish and Playful
Brave 
A Lioness 
Fierce and Feisty 
I am Honest
Direct 
Creative
A Secret yet to be Revealed 
A Mystery ready to be solved

This reminds me that old song 'I Am Woman' by Helen Reddy. Hear me roar! Nice.

The meaning behind the poem is obvious enough, but it is the presentation of the poem which seems to take away some of the impact, in my opinion. While I love the raw emotion which went into this work, the singular stanza and the lack of commas to provide any true stressing points in the poem itself. This creates a mass of intellectual words being lost in the heap of other intellectual words making them mute. I feel like once you create either a designation with more stanzas or some semblance f a comma system for impact it will greatly improve your writing.

A very good poem. We allow few people to know who we really are. We must create fake smiles and do what we must to survive. Sometime mystery is a good thing. I like the thoughts create by the outstanding poem.

You forgot to say that you are a poet with the gift of verse... we all have so many layers and yet most people we meet only see one maybe two of them.

I am a Warrior
In an endless war
Victorious
Wounded
Battle weary
The scars of life remain visible on my soul

Love that part the most.
