I Am The Book

By Lauren Otheim

I am the author who fills the blank pages with words

I am the actress who plays out the scenes

I am the emotion that wells in my eyes

I am the laughter that bubbles inside

I am the waves that come

in

and

out

I am the scholar and learner devout

I am the daughter, the student, the teacher

I am the child becoming adult

I am the bond that holds us together

I am the one who tears us apart

I am the hurricane broiling with change

I am the musician practicing over again

I am the one who can barely begin

I am the fire alight with a passion

I am the match that quickly burns out

I am the giver, the taker, the lover

I am the crazy unrelenting tumult

I am the story you read on my face

I am the mystery you can’t seem to place

I am the leaf blown from it’s tree

I am the bird flown from it’s nest

I am the traveler in much need of rest

I am the bullet shot from a gun

I am the one…  the one…  the one

I am the one who will never be done

I am the author who writes in the book

You are the wind that ruffles the pages of my life

(c)Lauren Otheim – 2009

      Thank you! I actually wrote this poem as a project for a class. We were supposed to come up with a creative way to describe ourselves, whether it be a painting, story, collage, etc. So this was my attempt.
