I Am Who I Am


I am who I am
I don't wear jewelry to be like one of them
I don't keep up with the trends to be like one of them
I don't act cool to be like one of them

I am who I am
I am unique
I change to be a better person
Not to be one of them

I am who I am
I wear jewelry to boost my self-esteem
I keep up with the trends to not be left out in the end
I act cool to fit in

I am who I am
I do all this and more for my own good
I want to be a better person
A better 'I am who I am'

I am just trying to be the best
And if you don't like who I am,
That's your problem
Because I am proud of who I am and I hope to be even better

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Do any of you have those annoying 'fake' friends that always tell you you're trying to be like someone else when you really want to just improve yourself? Isn't it annoying? Well, don't worry, you're not alone because I have one of those friends. Anyway, I can guarantee you that we all have at least one of those friends. They inspired me to write such a poem. Thank you to them! 😃

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
