I am...

This poem is about: 
Our world



I am...

As we approach adulthood

We are told our futures need to be planned out

before we can walk across that stage.

As seventeen year olds we are asked to choose our paths

But we still have so many experiences to be had

How could we possibly know who we are?

What I do know is this.

I am Georgia.

I am loud, I am rambunctious

I wear my beliefs on my sleeve

I am uncontrollably opinionated.

I think Hillary Clinton is insane and I think Donald Trump is arrogant

I think abortion is disgusting, and needs to be abolished

I think Goldfish are better than Cheez-Itz

And I think Coke is better than Pepsi

I recklessly pursue a strong relationship with God

Afterall, when the world falls away, He is all we’ll have to cling to.

I am a Proverbs 31 woman in the making

or at least, I try to be.

I don’t think there is a position of grace and dignity higher than being a Proverbs 31 woman.

I am a Jackie, in a world full of Marilyns.

I love classic cinema.

I think James Dean and Audrey Hepburn changed the world.

I think Grace Kelly ought to be every girls icon and hero

Instead of Kim Kardashian.

I am a dog person.

I am a pearl wearer

I am an Alabama fan

I am a football fanatic

I am a shopping enthusiast

I am a Dancing With The Stars and The Voice watcher

But then the seasons change and I am not always who I was before

In the summer I am a barefoot free spirit

I ride rollercoasters and lay in the sand

Then the leaves turn and school starts and I am a new me

I am a Starbucks drinking insomniac

I spend every moment of my day working towards goals that may be out of my reach

Then the grasses die, and the snow begins to fall

and I finally give myself a breath of fresh air

I hike in the mountains

I sing Christmas Carols

I celebrate our Lord

And then the rain begins to fall

And it falls for what seems like forever

And life starts all over again in the spring.

I am a constantly changing being

Aren’t we all?

Everyday is an opportunity for new experiences and new learning

I am always someone new

I am always transforming

But I am me

And that’s the best thing I could be.
