Poem – I’m Me

Is someone a witness to the way I live my life,

Has someone observed all the struggle and strife?

That I’ve been through to get where am now?

If so, then how?

Looking at you from a distance, you don’t know me,

And my perspective of you is kind of obscene,

Who are you to judge?

I love to have fun,

But I’m serious about my shit,

So look at what I have become,

I am a leader not a follower,

So cut the bullshit and chat chatter,

I am on the path to become an elitist,

So don’t get crazy while you’re reading this,

Like Dr. King Jr. I have a dream also,

Look deep into my soul and feel the pain sorrow,

I’m on the path to achieve,

Give back to my community,

And believe I will grow to be the best I can be
