I Am...

I Am...

A Poem by Scarlet Letter
"

An old poem of mine that actually got published.

"

I am the water

Innocent and gentle

But surprisingly strong.

 

I am the giggle

Starting silently

But growing in to laughter.

 

I am the solitude

On a Sunday afternoon

When the rain falls.

 

I am the memory

Never quite forgotten

But never clearly remembered.

 

I am the hand

Held in need

Or in trouble.

 

I am the smile

That crosses the face

When there’s nothing to smile about.

 

I am the tears

That fall

When a soul is lost.

 

I am the desolation

At the loss of innocence

In the world of today.

 

I am the cry

Of the starving millions

Calling for help.

 

I am the dream

Where only shards are remembered

When morning arrives.

 

I am the friend

You’ve always had

But took for granted.

 

I am the hope

That the world may someday

Be a better place.

these are very nice thoughts to have. Don't you wished everyone
felt this way. Kind of sad really to think this really happens to some
of us because we can't see what we have until it's too late.
awesome penning.

great Write!
Impeccably concise
Way to pull off the repetition without sounding monotonous!

This was perfectly crafted, without a doubt a gem. I've read many I am poems, but this one trumped them all.

You should be exceedingly proud of yourself!

A nice poem, sensitively written and without any unnecessary lines or misleading sections. Also, a far more positive piece than others by this writer (which I have reviewed so far). The writer has chosen to write in verses of equal length (three lines each). It has a true poetic structure, although the writer decided not to rhyme. The first line of each verse, represents a different quality of human nature. Quite uplifting! Thankyou for sharing this with us - and adding it to my writing group!

This poem. well its brilliant, i love how you work your way up. As a reader i found myself smiling at the beautiful sadness and pecefulness then i felt the hit of the words of the power of hope behind them and the desire in them. Its brilliant and im really happy its published. :)

I wrote a poem called "I'm just a girl" And it just expresses who I am. And this just tells what you would be if you were just something people make upon on their lives. And that's incredible. Very nice write. I look forward to reading more of your work!
