Who I Am Supposed To Be

Who I Am Supposed To Be

A Poem by Savannah Bly
"

Who I was supposed to be.

"
Who I Am Supposed To Be
Who I was supposed to be at 6
Was a kid who had everything
But maybe I wasn't

Who I was supposed to be at 10
Was a wild child
But maybe I wasn't

Who I was supposed to be at 13
Was a teen becoming
But maybe I wasn't

Who I was supposed to be at 18
Was a smart High School graduate
But maybe I wasn't

Who I was supposed to be at 19
Was an unknown
But maybe I wasn't

Who I am supposed to be at 20
Is what others think I can be
But maybe I'm not

Who I am supposed to be at 25
Is someone with an ideal future 
But maybe I'm not

Who I am supposed to be at 40
Is a responsible adult
But maybe I'm not

Who I am supposed to be
When I'm young
Is this old soul
Who I am supposed to be 
When I'm old
Is someone who can't die yet

Who I am supposed to be all my life
Is this average human being
But maybe I'm just an individual person

I'm 19 right now and I am so scared of growing up. Not knowing who I am and other concerns. Love the poem and I think it shows the fear we all, somehow, have when we are supposed to be growing up.

A very thoughtful work..this is what we keep wondering..caught between the inner conflict and the expectations from the society..We are just individuals ! Great work ma'am !
