I Am - Poem by Sydne Morris

1am poetic and complicated
I wonder when life will turn my way
I hear the words of lost people
I see the fake smiles on my peers
I want to be accepted and tolerated not just one or the other


I pretend to be the hero of the world in my imagination
I feel so lonely but happy at the same time
I touch the hearts of my friends with poetry
I worry about my parents future and mine
I am different and funny


I understand the feelings of rejection
I say anything except if it will hurt instead of help
I dream of a better life
I try to be a straight 'A' student
I am an American teenager
