I am a survivor
Because I wish to survive.

I am a dreamer
Because dreams are my break from reality.

I am a lover
Because I yearn to love.

I am a seeker
Because I will seek for my joy.

I am an observer
Because I can observe my enemies,
and know the score.

I am a killer
Because I kill to save others.

I am a hunter
Because I will hunt for truth and lies.

I am a decider
Because I can decide if I can trust you.

I am a teacher
Because I teach the future.

I am a student
Because I still learn.

I am a fighter
Because I do not believe in surrender.

I am a hater
Because the world dispises my spirit
and wants to bring me down.

I am a rebel
Because when the world spits in my face,
I will spit back.

I am a leader
Because I refuse to break down.

I am a wise one
Because wise one's understand lies.

I am a child
Because I can still laugh at other's stupidity.

I am an adult
Because I can put up with you.

I am innocent
Because my heart throbs with ignorance.

I am robbed
Because I still feel the pain.

And I am a survivor
Because survival is not my first concern,
but it happens to me anyways.
I wrote this a whle back, about a person whose been through hell and back, who is able to rise above the pain and misery, and stands before the world, defiant and unafraid.

Wonderful work! :juggle: I am just an old man, facing the demon of mine, to shovel the snow with my damaged spine...

This is fantastic! A great message for those who struggle not to give up, because they have survived the hardships and pain they went through. The couplets are simple, but very profound. Well done. :star:

Very inspirational poem. For me, the best revelations were "....i teach the future..." and "..understand lies."

Despises is spelled "despises," not "dispises." But otherwise, it's a good poem :)

this is cool an very true

"Take a risk, take a chance, make a change and BREAKAWAY"
Step into my head and watch as I take over the world.
I'm sorry for the demon I've become but you should be sorry for the angel you are not
