Write Your Own “I Am” Poem

Yesterday’s post, Hopeful and Blessed, was the result of a writing course exercise several summers ago.  I enjoyed the creation of the poetry, the way it unfolded, and how different pieces of my world blended together.  Try it out for yourself!

I Am…

I am (two special characteristics)

I wonder (talk about the future)

I hear (an imaginary sound)

I see (an imaginary sight)

I want (an actual desire)

I am (the first line of the poem restated)

I pretend (something you pretend to do)

I feel (a feeling about something imaginary)

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 make an effort to do)

I hope (something you actually hope for)

I am (the first line of the poem repeated)
