Therefore I am, and This is Me

Poetry By: Angie Blake

A non-rhyming poem I wrote many years ago when I was finding myself after a divorce. It has been re-written three times since writing it and I think I like this version best.
Not a suspense story, I know but just getting my feet wet. So to speak!

Therefore I am, and this is me.
I am a weak person.
I am weak when it comes to my family and friends.
I am weak when it comes to animals, and children.
I am weak when it comes to old people and nature of any kind.
I am weak when it comes to good people.
Therefore I am, and this is me.
I will be your friend until you prove to me otherwise.
I will help you until I realize that you are no longer helping yourself.
I will pray for you when the sun sets and rises every day.
I will never say something behind your back that I won't say to your face.
I will never, intentionally, make you distrust me in any way, shape or form.
I will never, intentionally, make you feel inferior, less than perfect or question your
own beliefs.
I will always listen to what you have to say.
I will always do things to help you in any way I can.
I will always hold my arms out to hug you just incase you might need one.
I will always be your special person.
Therefore I am, and this is me.
I am a strong person.
I know exactly what I want and will not accept anymore nor will I accept any less.
This also means that I am opinionated and stubborn.
I believe what I want to believe. I will listen to your beliefs and your opinions but because
they are your beliefs and your opinions doesn't mean I have to have them as well.
This also means I am my own individual and my own person.
I may not be perfect in your eyes but that's okay because I am not perfect in mine either.
I just hope that you accept me for who I am and I will try and do the same for you.
Sometimes I may screw up and say something and hurt someone's feelings.
Please try and forgive me for that because I am not perfect.
Therefore, I am and this is me.
Sometimes I may seem like I'm being a cold hearted because someone has hurt me in one way
or another and it's not easy for me to cry.
Sometimes I may be hurtful because I felt like I'd been hurt and I feel the need to lash out at
someone and can't explain it to you otherwise.
Sometimes I will cry and it'll really freak people out because I don't normally show emotion and
people think I don't have any.
Sometimes I can make you laugh so much you think you'll pee your pants at any moment because I love
listening to people laugh and having a good time.
I love my family and friends.
I love making memories.
I love making people laugh.
I love making people feel better.
Therefore I am and this is me.
