Who Am I?

Who Am I?

A Poem by J.Truth

A question that most don't have the answer to. Including me.

Who Am I...

I started off, searching for words
to describe myself
For better
for worst

Clearly I'm stumped
Lost; unable to define
[who I am]
I guess, some can describe me
as one who's a Grump.

But is that all there is to it?
A moody girl or a person who's
head's in the clouds-
Preoccupied by her dreams?

Is there really a word out there,
somewhere, for me, that fits?

Hmm.. Maybe I can be known
as the girl who wears skinny jeans.
And, favors graphic tees.

A girl.
That can act how she wants to act;
does what she please.

But, No. That's not me.
Parents' forbid that'd be me.
So who am I?

...Who am I really?

A question I'd like answered
Just 3 simple words.
Why can't I say them?

Because my throat closes up
Every time, it hurts

So always in my mind
I think of those 3 little words,
a question left unanswered
Never to be heard

3 little words.
Hovering, waiting to be spoken.
Serving as a distraction
...always as a distraction

3 Simple, Little Words.
