I Am…

I AM Erin
I HEAR my favorite songs on the radio
I SEE words across a paper
I CRY when I am sad
I AM honest

I AM nobody else by me
I WANT everybody to be treated equally
I NEED something, but I don’t know what
I HOPE that I am special to someone
I FEAR too much
I AM imperfect

I AM who I want to be
I FEEL judged
I TRY to stay true to myself
I WONDER about everything
I DREAM to be a better person, but
I AM not ashamed to be the person that I am today

This was supposedly written in the style of a poem by Anne Frank. It was an assignment for school.
