I Am Not // I Am



Today's post inspired by this piece I Am Not (I Am) which was inspired by This Is Me.



I am NOT....

I am not simply defined.

I am not hard to make laugh.

I am not quick to take a risk.

I am not easily angered.

I am not the person I used to be.



I AM...

I am complex, tangled and layered.

I am a caretaker, genuine, and kind.

I am curious.

I am a learner.

I am an extreme rule follower.

I am easily overwhelmed.

I am quick to forgive.

I am closer than ever to my authentic self.

  1. Fun back and forth. I found myself wondering what was between each line.

  5. I enjoy I Am poems and hadn't seen this specific structure yet. That was powerful. I hope that you enjoyed writing it.
