I Am What I Am - Poem by Renee Maritz

I am what I am
I’ve always been there with them
I am what and I am when
They write about me with a heart shaped pen

I am what I am
I go where and when
I was, I will be and I am
I am at my best when forbidden to them

I am what I am
I can be a song, a tune or a gem
Different for ladies, children and men
Create, destroy and start all over again

I am what I am
I am wisdom, knowledge and power forever till the end
I am how you choose – a wish, a miracle, a curse or a stem
I am love…

Yet again
I simply am what I am
