Self PortraitJoshua Hughes
I am me,
Myself and I.
Just like you I laugh and cry.
I endure ordeals,
I think, I feel,
and as a result like you, I am real.
That is not to say I am unorigional,
because each of us is an individual.
What sets me apart,
is a love of the arts;
I happen to be partial,
to those written and martial.
Other than that, I am quite mundane,
though my friends tell me,
at times I'm a pain.
Reading brings me joy,
like a kid with a toy,
sitting down with a good book
is like getting to look
into a whole other world,
one so different from ours.
Where the rules are all diffrent,
though only during the hours
that I choose.
Videogames let mey realize,
different ways to earn a prize.
Be it beating a boss, or completing a puzzle,
or even putting a dragon in a muzle.
When in this alternate world,
I have a new persona,
one that is strong, and never is gonna
Such lessons I have learned, and taken to heart,
By reading a book or playing a part,
I've learned to be true, loyal, and brave.
To stand up to those who would take away
The choices of others,
Which is an unforgivable sin.
A steadfast friend,
I am true to the end.
Through neither trials or obstacles,
Will my loyalty bend.
