From Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul


I am me.
There will not ever be anyone like me.
I am special because I am unique.
I am stardust and dreams.
I am light.
I am love and hope.
I am hugs, and sometimes tears.
I am the words “I love you.”
I am swirls of blue, green, red, yellow, purple,
orange, and colors no one can name.
I am the sky, the sea, the earth.
I trust, yet I fear.
I hide, yet I don’t hold anything back.
I am free.
I am a child becoming an adult.
I am me, and me is just right.

Beth Schaffer, age 15
