Who I am

from Banshee - Monday, April 14, 2003
accessed 1232 times

I guess this sounds a little confused, because sometimes I am.

Do I know who I am?
I am a child
            Without a childhood;
I am a daughter
            Without a father;
I am a son
            Who does not know his Mother;
I am a sibling
            Of too many others.
I am alive
            Without having lived;
I have a name
            Without an identity;
I have friends
            Who can not know me;
I have a past
            That is not a part of me.
I am whole
            Yet made of broken parts;
I am young
            But old by what I’ve seen;
I have lived many places
            But to home I’ve never been;
I was a prisoner,
            Now I am learning to be free.
I stand alone
            In the middle of a crowd;
I may be different,
            Yet I am anything but ordinary:
I am brave
When terrified to be;
I am strong
When I could be weak;
I am walking through
What cripples some;
I am conquering
            What many would only run from.
I have come in to the race
Behind the rest of the world.
Stride by stride I am catching up;
I am holding my own.
Though at times I may stand alone,
I stand above .
In all that I have become,
I am at last learning
Who I am.

Banshee, this is all of us darling, this is all of us.  You're not alone.  I promise you that time is a healer though, it gets better every day.

Weekly Poll

What should the weekly poll be changed to?

 The every so often poll.

 The semi-anual poll.

 Whenever the editor gets to it poll.

 The poll you never heard about because you have never looked at previous polls which really means the polls that never got posted.

 The out dated poll.

 The who really gives a crap poll.
