I Am Not Who You Think I Am


I am not who you think I am.
I am myself, I act how i wan't to act.
I dont care what people think or say.
I am my family. My family accepts me for who I am.
I am never alone when it comes to talking to someone.
My life is not good enough but I try to make
it as good as possible, sometimes I feel like
I left out a lot of my problems but I do it so
I wont be judged.
I might be defiant at times but I am a good kid
a kid that got her childhood taken away from her.
A child that had no father figure.
A child without love.
A child that became an adult at the age of 10.
I am myself and nobody knows my story they just know my name.
I am not who you think I am

    word!
    haha, it's a strong poem, I can tell that you know who you are, even if other people don't. Your trials in life have made you stronger. You're independent and punky (or maybe that's just me identifying with some of the stanzas) . (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
