"I Am"

Updated on January 29, 2018

I am not who you think I am,
this beautiful girl with a soul.
I am the reaper of all things evil,
I am the sower of all things good.
I am the bad seed,
I am the dreamer.
I am temptation knocking at your door.
I am all and none of these.
I am the deceiver.
I am the martyr.
I am the believer,
the free spirit,
the doubter.
I am everything I'm not,
and I'm not what I am.
I am failure, success.
rich, oppressed.
I am risen, and fallen.
I am alive, yet dead.
I am none and all of these.
I do as I please.
I am the master,
I am the puppet,
I hold my own strings.
I am in control,
A disaster.
A disease.
I am the beggar
down on my knees.
Truth is, I don't know what I am,
or who.
A stranger to myself,
A stranger to you.

      Damn!!! Niiiice

      I really liked the short, intense lines

      LOVE this style of writing

      Ya know, I originally titled my poem "Do you know what I am" with this title, but decided to change it

      This obviously holds some similarities to mine, yet its totally its own kick-A piece

      great rhyming skills :]
