Blood and Anxiety- I Am Who I Am

snapseed-53Did you hear the news?

I shouted it from the highest rooftop.

No, I won’t calm down.

It’s become abundantly clear.

Why do you care who can hear what I’m saying?

Does it matter that the neighbors will notice?

Be reasonable you say? Just for once in my life?

Clearly, it cannot wait another second.

I am who I am,

And it doesn’t matter if you care.

I am who I am,

And I’ll try my hardest to never forget.

-M.E. InkOwl


This September The InkOwl is teaming up with a guest poet The Wasp to bring you a mix of Blood and Anxiety. These poems were inspired by life events, personal experiences, and a desire to share differing perspectives on relationships. If you’re interested in participating in future corroborations with The InkOwl please feel free to message this blog from the contact page.
