It has been a long time since I have tried to rhyme a poem. I do a lot of writing, but the structure of rythym and rhyme seems limiting. The construction is slow an thought provoking.

This one feels clumsy, like I am walking on unfamiliar ground. But here it is anyway.

I AM

I am,
more than you ever allowed me to be.
I am angry,
because of your stealing from me.
I am waiting,
for justice to give me the key
to the person I am.
Where you are not
and
I am free.

I am,
looking for ways to open the door.
I am longing
for times when life is much more.
I am standing
my ground down into the core
of the person I am
where you are not
and
I am sure.

I am,
no longer content to be hurt at your will.
I am holding
the spirit you never could kill.
I am rising
again to the top of the hill
as the person I am
where you are not
and
I am healed.

Aden,

I have appreciated poetry since becoming part of MS. This one of yours is good; it speaks to hope and encouragement, ingredients that we all need to heal. Thank you for your words.

David
