Who Am I?

Description of this poem?
when writing this poem I took the opportunity to ask myself the question who am I? at a time in my life where I was beginning to understand  about world and people around me. This gave me the chance to reflect on what makes me the person I am and to think about the person I was becoming and the person I would intend to become.  i believe if these two things match then that is healthy foundation to start to build the bricks that make  me the person i want to be. It is important for us as people to assess the world and people around us but to also take the time to evaluate and understand the person we are.
Someone one once asked me, who am I?
I turned to them and I replied
I'm just me, that's all I can be
Now I know that isn’t true
Take a look in the mirror, whose looking back at you,
I saw a beautiful courageous young lady, a little unsure, a little confused
But ask me who am I?
And I’ll be sure to tell you,
I'm whoever I want to be
I have my own dreams, I make my own destiny
Who am I?
I'm still finding out
Who am I?
that's something you ought to think about
Who am I?
Who are you?



  1. I like your blog, your poetry is good. Can I give honest feedback?
    I don't know whether the grammar mistakes are on purpose or not, but as it reads it seems they were just slip-ups, I make those so many times that it's ridiculous. I think you should re-read your poems because you post them just to get the little grammar mistakes fixed. I don't mean to bash you or anything and I'm not trying to be rude, I just thought I'd let you know about them.
    I like how you add a photo to the poem it really adds to the whole effect of the poem.
    Come stop by my blog I'd love some of your feedback on my poetry.
