I AM

Grace

Dreamer, introverted, trusting, foolish
daughter of sorrow
Lover of justice, puppies, reading, and blazing sunsets
Upset when people insult the less fortunate, happy when someone’s happy, scared of height
Who needs her tab for her travelling library
Gets hurt easily, believes kind people, often misplaced her trust
Fears strange voices in the night, howls of dogs at twilight and shaman’s chants
Wants to see everyone treated equal, loved and healthy and prosperous
Resident of a Village Far far away

Rubik’s Cube

I’m no introspective individual
Others know me better
But if I were to chalk it up
To a phrase or defining thing
I would say, I’m like a Rubik’s cube
Small, compact, dotted with color
Some cubes add up to the solver
Other squares pose much harder
And just when you think it’s completed
I surprise you with another

Oh... I read the rules again,  the poem of mine didn't fulfil the criteria of the comp.   So I removed it.

I Am

Wally
Loving, caring, shy and smart?  
Son of Ana and Frank
A lover of music, poetry and art
I am one who feels thrilled, excited and delighted like a child
Who has been depressed, scared and angry at the world
But also discovered how to channel emotions into poems
I am the one with hopes of getting rid of the hate that exists in the world and finding peace
Dwelling in the central valley of California
Dreaming of one day going home

I Am

I am
More than the sum
Of my autistic traits

They over shadow the reality
Served my country in the armed forces
Currently work for National Health Service
 
If I had been diagnosed in early life
Would never have done anything
The title is stigma enough

For the shutters to come down
Discrimination is rife
As black lives matter so do autistic lives

I Am

A way with words that seeks for life to affirm them
A snapshot of a former life in a gallery of un-dead memories
An imperfect love song with all the right words and wrong melodies
Set to the cadence in an orchestra of failures and overrated accomplishments
A son divided in two where love seals the faults in the foundation
A bridge over the gap in a torn flesh
Mixed shades of paint upon the canvas of a mind searching for its true colors
A saint with a sinners tendencies made of contradicting appetites
Lust and love, life and death, obedience and rebellion, a critic and defender
Peace and war, grief and joy, selfish and selfless
Cloven between natures of this inner tension of transformation and delay
The calm in the eye of my own storms, destruction and restoration...
