Because I am Just Me

Location

I squeal in the silence of my bedroom

When I am excited

Because I am just me

 

I sing out loud

While my headphones are on

Because I am just me

 

I listen to myself talk

When I have a lot to say

Because I am just me

 

I listen to the birds chirp

While lying on my morning bed

Because I am just me

 

The light of bright stars and planets

Often travels through my telescope

Because I am just me

 

Written melodies haunt

My most desired dreams

Because I am just me

 

Strummed strings melt

My depression away

Because I am just me

 

My heart rages and my soul catches fire

When fighting for the rights of humanity

Because I am just me

 

I speak carefully

After listening to others

Because I am just me

 

I wait until 5 in the morning

Before going to sleep

Because I am just me

 

I am never able to sleep

After watching horror movies

Because I am just me

 

I was insecure about my poem-writing skills

Before writing this poem

Because I am just me
