I Am

My amazing friend Anna is working on her Master's Degree in Drama Therapy and shared the "I Am" poem format on her blog from one of her homework assignments. Anna has inspired me in many ways and so I thought I would try it out to see what I can come up with...

I am loving and loved
I wonder how it is all going to turn out in the end
I hear snowflakes singing
I see time stand still
I want eternity
I am loving and loved

I pretend not to care
I feel butterfly kisses
I touch a growing soul
I worry that I will mess it all up
I cry cause I really do care
I am loving and loved

I understand my choices
I say the rest of forever
I dream about it too
I try to be patient
I hope for it to be a reality
I am loving and loved

Try it out for yourself and see what you think...if needs be I can tag you so you can feel obligated to do it. It's pretty theraputic and uplifting. So if you are taking the time to read this long post, will you please do an "I Am" poem on your blog and let me know so I can come read it. Here is the format below.

I am (two special characteristics you have)
I wonder (something you are especially curious about)
I hear (an imaginary sound)
I see (an imaginary sight)
I want (an actual desire)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

I pretend (something you actually pretend to do)
I feel (a feeling about something imaginary)
I touch (an imaginary touch)
I worry (something that really bothers you)
I cry (something that makes you very sad)
I am (the first line of the poem repeated)

I understand (something you know is true)
I say (something you believe in)
I dream (something you actually dream about)
I try (something you really make an effort about)
I hope (something you actually hope for)
I am (first line of the poem repeated)
