Didn't even know it...

Night shifts are interesting.  They do all kinds of weird things like make you forget what day it is, but they also provide you with plenty of free time for reading and such.  I was looking through some old blog posts and came across this one about a poetry activity when I was an aide at the Elementary School.  I thought it might be fun to do a new poem and see how things have changed over the last couple of years.  So here we go:

I am smile-inducing and brave
I wonder if he knows...
I hear the call of winged wonder
I see the state of imagined bliss
I want to have a career instead of a day job
I am smile-inducing and brave

I pretend to have conviction
I feel that exciting stir
I touch the edge of fame
I worry that the edge is as far as I'll ever get
I cry alone on the beach of a Friday night
I am smile-inducing and brave

I understand that it can be really hard
I say "Get it!"
I dream about giant spiders
I try to just keep it together some days
I hope to hear the good words
I am smile-inducing and brave
Here's the form once again if you want to do your own.  Feel free to post it on your own blog/facebook/journal/whatever.  And also feel free to leave your poem in the comments!  I'd love to see what you all come up with.
I am (two descriptive things)
I wonder (something you wonder about)
I hear (some imaginary thing you hear)
I see (some imaginary thing you see)
I want (something you really want)
I am (first line of the poem)

I pretend (something you pretend)
I feel (something you really feel)
I touch (something imaginary you touch)
I worry (something you worry about/fear/etc.)
I cry (something that makes you cry)
I am (first line of poem)

I understand (something you understand)
I say (something you say/want to say)
I dream (something you dream about)
I try (something you try to do)
I hope (something you hope for)
I am (first line of poem)
