Who Am I? - Poem by Sarah Robichaud
I am the sun in the sky; bright and shining.
I am wind in your hair; cool and freeing.
I am the laughter of a child; innocent and sincere.
I am the newly-born butterfly; brought to new life.
I am the woman behind the man; I am the strong one.
I am the underestimated Queen. Men know not what I can do.
I am the Aurora Borealis; beautiful and fantastic. They do not always see my beauty.
I am what you do not see. I am the hidden beauties. The ones only some see.
I am what you do not know. I am all that is yet to be found; yet to be discovered.
I am the question in your mind. Who am I? What is my purpose?
I am that endless summer night; freedom and happiness. The warm sand between your toes.
I am all they say I cannot be. I will prove them wrong. I am what I want to be.
I am a newly bloomed flower; freshly touched with dew. Fragile and soft.
I am what you are afraid of. The things you do not understand.
I am love, pure and simple. That feeling that you would do anything for that one person.
I am that shy smile you see on her face when you first tell her you love her. I am gentle and quiet. I am sweet and endearing.
I am more than what you see here. I am the things you do not see outside.
I am the sands of time, slipping through your fingers. You can only accomplish what you can in the time given to you.
I am the tears of Mother Nature. She cries for what she has lost and for what she will lose.
I am silence. You cannot hear me and you cannot see me. I am what is not said and what should be said.
I am what has not yet been discovered. I am what could save lives and I am what could be beautiful.
I am the deep dark of night and the bright light of day. I am dark and mysterious and I am happy and shining.
I am that moment in time that you never want to end. So beautiful and important. You never want to let it go.
I am the peace, which they did not seek. I am life and love. I am safety and comfort. I am knowing that death is not around the corner.
I am the child lost and alone. No family. No friends. No place to call home.
I am the world. All the people. All the animals. All the plants. Everything on this planet.
I am someone and;
I am no one. I am someone who could change the world, but I am someone who could be nothing of importance.
I am far away and yet so close. I am right at the edge, right where I want to be. Yet at the same time, I am so far from home, so far from my hearts home.
I am who you are looking for. I am that love. I am that home. I am that pretty face and sweet smile.
I am the pieces of a lonely lover’s heart. Too many times it has been hurt. Now the pain has caused many cracks and it is shattered.
I am the tropical blue sky. I am that warm sun in that gorgeous blue sky. I am the puffy white clouds you see there.
I am that pretty girl all the boys want and yet;
I am the one they all overlook. She is the popular one and gorgeous at that. The other is not so beautiful, but if they bothered, they would see that she is truly beautiful. It is the inside that counts and that they would see.
I am the tears of a mother whose son is at war. I am the shattered dreams and the forlorn cry. She may never see him again and her heart breaks every time she thinks of him.
I am the courage of a soldier. I can stand up in a fight. I can beat them all back.
I am the mustang, wild and free. Running in the wind.
I am a ghost, sad and lost;
Looking for where I belong. Looking for who I am. Trying to find my place.
I am the future. I am what could be.
I am me.
