I got up one morning and wrote this. I have no idea if it’s a poem because I have no idea how to write one so keep that in mind when you read it. I sat and wrote it in about 5 minutes, with no corrections.
WHO I AM?
I slipped I tripped I fell I forgot (WHO I AM) I silenced, I shut down I shrank and I shrouded I wept and I slept I wrote and I wrote and I wrote I rose like the phoenix, awakening to (WHO I AM) I analyzed and I strategized I planned and I prioritized I moved back into the world energized I flinched and I winced at the horrors out there I charmed and I cajoled I smiled and I said "hello" I touched, I teased, I played and I parlayed I shared my heart and I committed my humanity I silenced the ego, caressing the demons into sanity I offered my body with abandon I challenged my mind with all it could imagine Then......I weave back into the dark, bypassing the light, silently slipping and tripping into another hard night... So tired, so tired..... I slipped I tripped I fell I forgot (WHO I AM)
