Who am I?

by Erin Dijkema  
5/07/2011 / Poetry

Who am I?
A self-destroying vessel
A continuous critic
One who is generous,
To avoid attention of pity
Afraid of sad secrets
And of haunting past
Judging own abilities
Self-professing fool
Fiercely independent
Never accepting,
Denying impossibilities
Too damn stubborn
Selfishly attaining desires
Fearful of truth
And hidden emotions
Confessions standing
And waiting to be told
But never given the chance
A failing friend,
Afraid to fully rely
And lean on the loving
And trust those deserving
Nothing but the honesty.
Those who are also like who I am
Unsure of their future
Disappointed in the world
Or their own choices made
Or even possibly both.

But who am I
To judge and criticize
What God has made
and formed, patiently?
He never left me,
Despite my unworthiness
And greatest despair.
He knows who I am,
Who I was and
Who I will be, sooner or later
He gives me strength
For both the mundane steps
And the most enduring challenges
Who am I to doubt?
I am ignorant of the truth
I am weak and foolish
And sometimes irrational
Who am I to doubt
Who I will be in His hands?
Whether itll be right
Or good enough for the future?
Am I the one that knows all,
Though sometimes I insist I do?
Who am I?
I am a struggling follower
Of the I AM.
