I Am…

I AM an individual
I HEAR my whispers of song lyrics
I SEE a reflection in a mirror
I CRY, but you don’t notice
I AM sincere

I AM trying my best
I WANT want to be successful
I NEED to understand
I HOPE he feels the same about me
I FEAR too much
I AM frustrated

I AM still not you
I FEEL a strong, unrecognizable emotion
I TRY not to hurt anyone
I WONDER what others think
I DREAM all the time, and
I AM not going to stop

This is a rewrite of the poem I wrote in 2003.
