05. Kiera S.'s I Am Poem


I Am Poem
by Kiera S.

I am different
Life has been a blessing and time has been a gift.
It was given to me in a unique way.
My skin is like caramel, smooth and bright.
My eyes are dark brown but light shines through.
My hair imitates the colors of earth.

I am special
Life is a spinning top; it mixes my emotions around and around.
I don’t know how to explain the feeling.
My head tumbles and turns over moments in time.

I am offbeat
I take seconds to think about time and life.
How they are my friends and enemies.
I try to learn everything life has to offer, but time is limited.
For life and time are my treasures.
I am different.
