I Am


I am

Too nice to be called a DOG
Too evil to be called a SAINT
Too bad to be called NICE
Too nice to be called BAD

I am

Too quiet to be called LOUD
Too Loud to be called QUIET
Too humble to be called ARROGANT
Too arrogant to be called HUMBLE

I am

Too bold to be called SHY
Too Shy to be called BOLD
Too troublesome to be called a GOOD BOY
Too much of a good boy to be called TROUBLESOME

I am

What you see and nothing more
I am everything above and nothing less
Too understand is impossible
Too try is not
I am what I am

And that is……
ME
