I Am Poem
by Saakshi M.
I am the ocean waves,
Rising and then dropping, again and again,
making loud crashing sounds.
Making high and low tides.
I am the wind racing the world,
flying faster and faster until I can fly no more
and I hear the beating of my heart loud in my ears.
I am trying,
Trying to cross the finish line,
trying to climb the mountain to see the valley on the other side.
I am trying to find light,
trying to find hope, in this darkness.
Sometimes I am very frustrated with my life.
With my clothes, with my hair,
my sister, my parents, with my friends, with...myself.
I feel like an invisible cloak locks me up.
I try and try to get out, it’s no use.
I am imaginative,
I can get trapped in a story of a book,
or lost in the jungle with a piece of paper I have written on.
For me, my life is a book,
my life is just a written story on a piece of paper,
I treasure that book and paper.
I am spirit,
a free spirit,
a brave spirit,
a hopeful spirit,
an imaginative spirit...
A WILD SPIRIT.
