some think of themself as inadequate
useless as a bucket of spit

some think of themself as the greatest thing since
Ben and Jerry's double mocha chip

they are dead wrong
you know it
I know it

this leads me to believe
any assessment of self is suspect
at best


no need to add the "I am who I thin I am" at the end, You have already established your thoughts on the matter. The poem was perfect for me and so very true it's just the last line that thru me off. If you like it, leave it in, I git what I wanted from the entire piece despite that. Nicely done.

Pegasus was a genius,
living within a suit of difference.
He liked what he was,
nodded in respect and
simply flew . . . away.

" I am who I am, say what I say, do what I do. With no apology."

I had originally started this piece with the line "am I who I think I am", then dropped it as I was about to submit the poem,
then for some unknown reason, added it to the bottom. I'm glad your senses came in to play...I removed it.
thanks for the kind and generous comments.

p.s. I admire your rebel refreshing
