I Am Poem

I am a friend, a foe, a student, and a teacher.

I wonder what lies ahead for me.

I hear screams and whispers.

I see love and fighting.

I pretend everything is okay.

I touch my locket; it calms me.

I worry about my dad.

I cry for what I don't know.

I am only fourteen.

I understand my feelings.

I say I am okay.

I dream all is right with the world.

I try to be strong.

I hope for the best.

I love my family and friends.

I hate lies and not knowing.

I know I will be okay.

I think I can take care of myself.

I am me.
