My True Self - Poem by jennifer her

i'll never be a shadow
that will evetually disappears
within the dark, the darkness which will consume all
i'll never be a memory
which will completely fade in
a short period of time
i'll never be a wandering spirit, which lurks around
on this land filled such grief and sorrow
the loneliness which clings onto a person's
cold isolated heart
i'll never be someone i am truly not, and if so
then what's the importance that i exist, by those who truly
recognizes me for who i am truly deep inside
i'll never be the land that may be flooded
by the human's doubts and fears
and if i am
i should be the fire,
the fire which will never loses its sparks to warm
a person's cold heart
and if its impossible
i will be the stars, its gleaming light which
will guide the lost to their way,
and if not,
i should be the bird,
the bird which flies freely across the majestic sky without
any rules or laws attached to it
and though it may seem to complicated, even if its
impossible, i am still my true self, which will still be
recognized by those who are important to me
if it's impossible, i'll never be someone
i am truly not deep inside
i wll only be my true self
my true self will never be replace,
my uniqueness which gives me form
will never change

    wonderfully voiced poem, but the errata (typos) need to be corrected to enable the reader to appreciate the message w/o having to stumble over obvious mistakes in form which in themselves may create a sesnse of doubt in your truly capable talent. On first glance, there are eight simple-to-correct errors. Proof it. This can be done right on line. (Report) Reply
