Who Am I?
I feel … overwhelmed by life
I trust … I’ll somehow be a good wife
I hear … the sounds of children laughing
I understand … that moment are always fleeting
I worry … that we will never have enough money
I’m glad … though we’re “poor” we are happy
I want … my children to be kind to each other
I don’t want … others to feel I’m a bother
I’m sad … that the world is a much harsher place
I dream … of someday floating in space
Who Am I?
I am … wife, mother, daughter, friend
I like … stories that are happy in the end
I hope … I’ll die peacefully in my bed
I dislike … peanut butter on my bread
I admire … St. Therese, the Little Flower
I fear … over temptations, I have weak power
I need … God to always show me the way
I know … it’s my choice to have a bad or good day
I wish … I had a butler, a maid, and a chauffer
I wonder … what sacrifice for today I should offer
Who Am I?
I’m happy … my husband has a job that provides for us all
I pretend … I need something so I can go to the mall
I try … to clean but I can never keep up
I read … so much that at night, it keeps me up
I’m sorry … I don’t say I love you enough
I wear … purses filled with too much stuff
I play … video games when I don’t want to think
I’m angry … at people who drive after they drink
I’m relieved … everyday that my parents are still alive
I love … that I have a family of five!

I think we can all see a little bit of ourselves in each one.
especially that cleaning one, as I look at what happens to the living room when mommy stays up to ring in the year at midnight — and kids wake up 1/2 hour before her. 🙂
Happy New Year to you and a most blessed 2014!
A Happy and Blessed New Year to you too!
I agree with Leslie — I think, we can all see a little bit of ourselves in this poem. I certainly do! Happy New Year!!!
Happy New Year too!
