I Am

Intense emotions devour the canvas of my mind.

I spend the night with salt-fed eyes,

Wondering if it will ever really get better.

I am strong.

 

Errors seem to trail behind all of my work.

I envision myself as savvier,

But someone else can always do it better.

I am intelligent.

 

Lush words spill over my pages,

I hope to breathe life into the souls of others,

But they brush past as if it were covered in gutter gunk.

I am creative.

 

I look in the mirror with sunken eyes,

My skin is dull and my jawline too soft,

I long for a different shell.

I am beautiful.

 

There are a lot of things I can’t do,

But there are a lot of things I can.

So whether I like it or not,

I simply am.
