A Poem About Who Am I

 A Poem About Who Am I


In this poem the poet describes negative thoughts she has about herself and for each thought she finds a positive answer.

I feel like a failure: pathetic and inadequate.
Shh! I am very emotionally literate.

I know I can be socially awkward: easily intimidated and shy.
Shh! People compliment me on my blue eyes.

Not much of a logical or numerical thinker.
Shh! My friends tell me I can be a good singer.

At times I question the purpose of my existence:
Why did God create me? Wherefore did He send me?
Shh! Maybe I was sent to brighten others’ lives by being caring and friendly.

At times I am too much of an idealist.
Shh! At least I’m not a pessimist.

Too taken in by outside allure.
Shh! Facing difficulties made me mature.

Sometimes my mind is in the clouds, even when focus would be imperative.
Shh! I am very intuitive and sometimes creative.

I can be a quick quitter: I easily give up.
Shh! At least I know how to shut the bad thoughts up.

Cause that’s what I’ve been doing all along:
sing a positive verse when I don’t like the song.

The negative adjectives are so real and they make me so blue.
But that doesn’t stop the positive adjectives from also being true.

Although at times I make myself mad,
Negative thinking will only make me more sad.

I am what I am: all the good and the bad.
I deserve love from myself; no one can love me as much as I can.
