FYI

In school, we were assigned the "I Am" Poem format. I felt like changing it up a bit and posting it here. I will post the template below. If you write one, please send me a message and I will link to it.

"I am"

I am tired of fighting and weary of this world.

I wonder when we will stop fighting for the sake of fighting.

I hear people argue about getting their fair share.

I see death and bloodshed over possessions we would rather share.

I want to see an end.

I am tired of fighting and weary of this world.

I pretend we are happy and have hope.

I feel like it is already too late and we are lost.

I touch my children’s faces.

I worry that our children will not see their potential.

I cry because there is so much they could have.

I am tired of fighting and weary of this world.

I understand that change starts in each of us.

I say live for each other and in this we will live for ourselves.

I dream that tomorrow will be better.

I try to bring peace and love wherever I go.

I hope we still have a chance.

I am tired of fighting and weary of this world.


I am hopeful and driven to expand our potential.

I wonder when love will triumph.

I hear laughter.

I see people opening their hearts to each other.

I want to see everyone successful and happy.

I am hopeful and driven to expand our potential.

I pretend we are a people united.

I feel love and harmony from many around me.

I touch the future and smile.

I worry no longer when the spirit of unity flows through our lives.

I cry tears of joy when our hearts share love.

I am hopeful and driven to expand our potential.

I understand we have grown from a young, angry race fighting to survive; into a powerful race able to touch the stars and break limits.

I say reach for the stars! Hold each other in your heart. Together we can do anything!

I dream of a future abundant; in technology and in harmony with nature.

I try to nurture hope and love.

I hope.

I am hopeful and driven to expand our potential.

The template I created and used in word:

I really like this poem. It is different to the poem "I am", that I wrote about a year ago. I will post it and send you the link. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed this creation. :-)
