I Am 

I am Nathan
I wonder if the world's just a test
I hear the birds chirping while I lay awake
I see the beautiful red chested robin in the tree
I want to be the best I can
I am Nathan

I pretend that the sounds I hear at night are just me
I feel the snake's scaly skin on my hands
I touch the smooth bark of the beech tree
I worry about the cat and dog getting used to each other
I cry when I am sad and lonely
I am Nathan

I understand that life's not fair
I say that nature is a gift that should live
I dream about the day I will find my inner self
I try to push myself in sports
I hope that the world will make peace
I am Nathan
