I Am One

I Am One

I am one who wonders what a dad is like

Even though mine is still alive

I am one who scares easier than most

Though I love the rush

 

I can’t stand drawing on the sidewalk

The stubs of chalk are nails in my ears

 

I am one that sings very loudly in my car

Even though it’s mostly yelling

I am one that tends to fall

Though I am pro at catching myself

 

I play the guitar

The strums hold hands with my voice

 

I am one with twenty siblings

Even though they are all grown up with children

I am one with doodles along the sides

Though I’m trying to pay attention

 

I work everyday, I am so tired

My body is a sack of potatoes

 

I am one which feels alone

Even though there are people everywhere

I am one which makes people laugh

Though I care more about the deeper stuff

 

I love driving stick shifts

My desire to drive them is the ocean’s pull

 

I am so very strong

Even though I cry uncontrollably

I am so amazing

though I don’t always see it

 

I eat too much

There’s a black hole in my stomach

 

I am one going to go far in life

Even though I don’t see it

I am one going to help others

though I have a hard time helping myself

 

I crave a relationship

There’s an arrow pointing towards him

 

I am one loving to learn new things

Even though I zone out

I am one loving the night sky more and more

Though I have a hard time staying up at night

 

I feel like I have not much else to say

The end is here.
