He Is What I Am Not


He is talkative

I am quiet


He is brave

I am a coward


He is calm

I am anxious.


He is my rock

I am not myself without Him


He is my helper

I am judged without Him


He is my right hand,

I am lost without Him


my left hand,

I am scared without Him


my heart.

I am weak without Him.


He is everything I want to be

I like His words


He is comfortable

I like His actions


at parties,

I like His protection


at meetings,

I like His anxiety-free mind


in class,

I like His confidence


during class change.

I love Him.


He is the one person

I cannot be without.
