A CITIZEN

I AM ME

I am a citizen,

I was born in the USA.

I am a voter for peace.

And I always pray.

I am a descendant,

Of incredible women,

They taught me the ways,

That I should be living;

I am a worker,

Cause I like to eat.

Prices soar higher,

As I make ends meet.

ME

GRANDMA AND ANIMAL LOVER

I AM WHO I AM

I am a mother,

My kids have left.

I am a grandma,

That’s better yet.

I am a survivor,

I have seen too much,

Hurt and heart ache,

Struggles and such;

I am a friend,

Of old and new,

A shoulder to cry on,

An ear to chew.

WHO AM I

I am an animal lover,

Pets are my friends,

Growing up on a farm,

I’ve fed cattle and hens.

I am an artist,

Painting with brush,

Pictures of interest,

I may not rush.

I am a poet,

Sometimes I rhyme,

A thought of emotions,

May free up my mind;

A MUSIC LOVER

Source

WHATEVER I AM I GO WITH THE FLOW

I am a writer,

A creator with words,

I practice my skill,

I hope to be heard;

I am a music lover,

Of old things and new,

I am crazy about Elvis,

But others will do.

I am who I am.

I want you to know.

Whatever the reason,

I’ll go with the flow.
