Poem: I Am 

Last Updated: 08/13/2013 4:33 pm
I Am

I am my mother’s eyes
Her ability to let things go
Even when repeated a dozen times
I’m her oblivious mind
The angel and devil that rest on her shoulders
The thought that helps her sleep at night

I am my father’s smile
His strength and pride
The strange, fickle man constantly on his toes
I’m the beat of his heart
The spark to his ideas
The sun that gives light to his life

I am my brother’s laugh
His mistakes and his fury
The missing link to his soul
I’m his better half
The structured man he lost in the past
His greatest accomplishment

I am a family dream
Built in the past for a promising future
A living hope
I’m a rocky road
With a dusty trail
And a fork at the end

I am all these things
And they are all me
The people that surround you
You will  always be
