Ok guys Its time for me to get cliche' on  you.  I decided it was time to evaluate how well I know myself, and what I know about myself so I did one of these god awful I am poems...but I want to see what everyone else thinks of themselves too so post yours under mine if you feel up to it (or down to it   peace


I am undiscovered
I am a romantic in waiting
I am partial to gummi bears, sweetarts and nerds
I am a nerd
I am a moviequoteaholic
I am intimidated by beauty
I am a recovering dependent
I am finally in control of my life
I am happy wasting days and nights on the beach
I am too philosophical for my own good
I am learning every day
I am unsure, insecure, and will endure
I am forever a child
I am going to be a father, someday
I am a dreamer
I am naïve
I am out there somewhere
I am a romantic in waiting

I am indescribable….

I am a girl, small and naïve
I am a woman, mature and strong
I am never good enough
I am the sister of absolute perfection
I am the daughter of intelligence and beauty
I am not my siblings
I am not my parents
I am never good enough
I am in love with laughter=
I am a believer in true love
I am a child of God
I am myself, but try to be more
I am never good enough
I am a quiet rebel
I am a messy perfectionist
I am waiting for a life to begin
I am insecure about everything
I am never good enough
I am what you people think I am
I am whispers and gossip
I am that girl
I am my grades, my looks, my personality
I am never good enough
I am indescribable….

I am unstructured

I am indecisive
I am my own worst enemy
I am energetic
I am always learning
I am the "other woman"
I am spontaneous
I am naive
I am a wallflower
I am the girl next door
I am the object of your affection
I am the one you love to hate
I am defensive
I am insecure
I am in love with a dream
I am on the verge of discovery
I am exhausted
I am indecisive

Why is it that we are at our most ingenius only when trying to destroy the things that keep us alive and thriving?

Wooo! This looks like fun. So it's my turn to try.

I am who I am,
I am someone to make you laugh,
I am at times insecure,
I am a hopeless romantic,
I am a music lover,
I am an aspiring writer and/or musician,
I am unsure of the future,
I am unsure of a lot of things,
I am a loyal friend,
I am a person who cries herself to sleep sometimes,
I am living in my own fantasies,
I am a slob and you like it,
I am weird but in a good way,
I am Erin,
I am who I am.


I'm no good at those kind of poems but oh well.

I am pure potential energy
I am afraid
I am logical
I am my own grey dreams
I am a "walking contradiction"
I am my books
I am my words
I am never my words
I am a sloppy obsessive
I am my own god
I am always hungry
I am never alone
I am always alone
I am the observer
I am angry
I am waiting for the rain
I am too impatient
I am doubtful
I am independent
I am clinging
I am letting myself go
I am someone else

I am Cody
I am often shy
I am humorous
I am proud of being who I am
I am longing to be able to be who I am
I am constantly striving to be better
I am an individual
I am not trying to please anybody else
I am not led by the crowd
I am a loving friend
I am open minded
I am willing to try new things
I am a brother and a son
I am a child of God
I am strong willed
I am stubborn
I am not afraid of who I am
I am what I allow myself to be
I am not perfect
I am challenged by my imperfections
I am waiting for my time to come

I am a puzzle even to myself
I am never quite there
I am over active in every way
I am always loud when silence is needed
I am a fake blonde but not a fake girl
I am too damn talkative
I am waiting for something, i'm just not sure what yet
I am living in the future too much
I am always having to tell myself to just be
I am probably doing myself more harm than good
I am always surrounding myself with messed up minds just like mine
I am letting too many things take me down
I am just trying to get along
i am...impossible

I guess, I'll give it a shot. lol. No critiques on this one please.

I am therefore I think.
I am the ink in my veins.
I am the hand that holds the reins.
I'm gold on green.
I am obsene.
I am the hand that rocks the cradle.
I am a fable.
I am the cherry in the pipe.
I am ripe and ready to burst.
I am stress above the verse.
I am the priceless perfect rhyme.
I'm lost in time
and I am drained.
'I am the shadow of the waxwing slain...'*

You are rude.
Yes, I am outspoken.
You are insulting.
Yes, I am outspoken.
You are annoying.
Yes, I am outspoken.
Your views are disturbing.
Maybe I talk too much.
I disagree with you.
That is because your ears are closed.
You are making no sense.
You are denying yourself sense to be made.
You are a terrible person.
Yes, I am outspoken.

This is neat.  So as much as people would hope that I would stay away, I won't.

I am more than you can handle.
I am less than I can stand.
I am not good enough to love you.
I am not good enough to be loved.
I am hard as nails.
I am an unopened book.
I am a statue today.
I am a pigeon tomorrow.
I am a too tired to continue.

Wowzers...hi kevin, im glad you decided to swallow ur pride and write this one cuz i thought it was very well written, one of the best ive read! (everyone else's was awesome too!) and i feel like i got to know u a lil thru it. I actually wrote a poem bout myself a few years ago. It doesn't start with "I AM"'s but its close enough. Guess i'll add it in here (sorry so long)....

The "WHY" of Me

-I write because all other forms of artistic expression fail me.
-I sing because the words would be meaningless without musical accompaniment.
-I play the piano because my hands communicate more accurately than my mouth.
-I win because I do not know how to fail.
-I question because ignorance is an open invitation to fear and prejudice and hate.
-I know because I asked.
-I persist because I don't know when to quit.
-I laugh because my foolish pride hastily holds my tears captive.
-I cry because my heart is overflowing.
-I smile because I've seen a beauty in the simplest of things that not even the cruel hand of a human form can take away from me.
-I frown because you don't see what I see, and to me that is a great unfairness.
-I yearn because my path would end without an incentive to pave the way.
-I love because you've opened up something within me and moved my soul, whether or not I wanted you to.
-I dream because the harshness of reality would soon engulf my free-flying spirit if I did not, which is a sad but true thing if you think about it for too long. So I choose not to.
-I pray because I believe the answers lie in something greater than myself.
-I believe because they've failed to give me a reason not to.
-I have faith because it is loyal when all else has gone awry.
-I am happy because I have no reason to be sad.
-I admire because I've seen in you something that I would like to possess.
-I inspire because I've somehow managed to touch others the way my inspiration has touched me.
-I blush because I am too insecure to admit to myself that there is something beautiful in me that I've allowed you to see.
-I look because I don't know what I'll find.
-I listen because the value of another person's thoughts is something I can't afford to waste.
-I strive because I seek to obtain perfection.
-I laugh at myself because there is no such thing as perfection.
-I live because I’m dying to be alive.
-I will die only if I've failed to truly live.
-I will say nothing more because there is nothing and everything left to say.

Not as good as urs, but hey i contributed!
Again - great work!

I am my own person
Yet I am lost
I am my own worst critic
Yet I'm biased
I am emotional
Yet so stubborn
I am the product of my environment
Yet try think outside of the box
I am complex
Yet can be read like a book
I am a quitter
Yet have my feet firmly planted on the ground
I am my mother's daughter, unfortunately
Yet at times I wish I was someone else
I am naive, insecure, sarcastic and unstable
Yet Always trying to reach out
I am my own person
Yet I am lost

I am self-destructive
I am discombobulating
I am aggressive
I am defensive
I am (according to my dad) arrogant
I am a quiet talent (not sure what though)
I am messed up
I am actually quite a nice person once you get to know me.

Liked the idea, liked your poem. Nice one.
