What I submitted:


I Am




I am a cheerful and affable pre-teen
I wonder if there are any real gods
I hear trumpets declaring an unwanted war
I see dogs howling for food
I want a job in video game development
I am a cheerful and affable pre-teen




I pretend that there is a world where people are always happy
I feel the warmth of ten dogs cuddling me in the cold
I lift my friends when they are down
I worry that people may get in a disagreement that makes war
I cry to see others get bullied or hurt in any way
I am a cheerful and affable pre-teen




I understand no one is truly the best at anything, for anyone can be defeated
I say words that others and I make up
I dream of making the best RTS game ever
I try to provide and collect for food drives
I hope that I can become a chess champion


I am a cheerful and affable pre-teen




What it actually meant to me, line by line:




I Am


I am trying to stay happy
I search for a reason to hope
I hear humanity is too
I see my failures leading to hopeless starvation
I want to have hope
I am crying


I pretend that there is NOTHING wRoNG
I feel the comfort of my 'friends' when hit by others
I lift them up while they put me down
I worry that I may go too far
I cry when it occurs
I am sinking


I understand that everyone loses hope eventually
I tell made up liƎ5 to get by
I dream impossibly big to create some faith
I try to give others hope
I hope that I can overcome my own oDdS
I am drowning


This is a poem from Middle School I found recently so I figured I'd post it for shits and giggles. I wrote the meaning of this seemingly positive poem on the opposite side of the page after I got it back from the teacher. Finally found it again after all these years.
