I AM BY LAUREN ZEMESKI

To capture oneself in a poem is a difficult task,

For I am much more than the things I have done.

I am finespun.

How does one describe the experiences they have been through in just a few lines?

There is simply no possible way.

I am no cliche.

The places I have gone do not define me,

But they play a part.

I am a work of art.

People in my life have come and gone,

And each has contributed to the person I have become.

I am whatever may come.

I have made many mistakes,

And each day I strive to change.

I am, admittedly, strange.

While no one word can describe me,

A list of them might.

I am just right.

And through it all,

I keep my eyes on Him, for He said to Moses,

I Am that I Am.
