I Am

I am laughter and sorrow

I am scars and tears

I am fire and rage


I am afraid

I am gentle

I am strong


I am a daughter

I am a student

I am a friend


I am brave

I am harsh

I am weak


I am ink stains and rough hands

I am curly hair and cowlicks

I am music and paint


I am alone

I am quiet

I am smart


I am a writer

I am a soldier

I am a worker


I am surrounded

I am boisterous

I am ignorant


I am sunlight and peace

I am stitches and tape

I am joy and fear


I am

Who I am

And I am
