Who Am I? - Poem by Megan Lutz

Who am I, it’s not who you see.
Not the person at school
Not who you want me to be.
I wish I could show you the person inside
Lose all of my fears
With nowhere to hide
The person I am
Is the girl with the knife
Every cut every slice
Gambling my life
With every roll of the dice
As the blood flows down my arm
My mind is free to be
Who I want to be.
Caught in my own tradgedy.

    I have just finished reading all thirteen of Megan's poems. Most of them deal with depression, self-mutilation, and suicide. She has not submitted anything to this website since 2006. That's nine years ago.
    Megan, I sincerely hope that you are still around and much happier than when you wrote these poems. Suicide is never the answer. (Report) Reply

    Life's realities can sometimes destabilize our existence and jolt our sensibilities. The situation has been illustrated very wisely in the poem. This is only the beginning and not the end. be confident:
    Gambling my life / With every roll of the dice / My mind is free to be / Who I want to be. (Report) Reply
