WHO AM I *new poem*
Have you ever stared at your own reflection, and asked yourself
Who am I ?
Have you ever wondered who taught you how to laugh, and who taught you how to cry
Have you ever been shaken by a night terror, and when you wake you are sat there all alone;
Have you ever missed a girl so much, you spent an entire night just watching and waiting for a text to appear on your phone?
Have you ever knocked yourself down to rock bottom, so you could slowly make your own way to the top;
Have you ever moved so fast you were just unable to stop
People have always doubted my chances of being a success, but I pushed aside my doubters and I chose to believe;
But I was in a place where I couldn’t show weakness, and I guess that’s why when I lost my Nan I didn’t allow myself to grieve
I always thought I was destined to write these verses, so in reality I never had a choice;
But I never really felt like a poet, I always felt more like a rapper who had lost his voice
So now when I need to show my emotion I just grab hold of a pen and close my eyes, and these words simply fall out onto this page;
A million verses sculptured by happiness,
A million letters used to release my rage
Have you ever wondered who taught you how to laugh, and who taught you how to cry;
My life revolves around one simple question,
And that question is
Who am I ?
