'I Am' Hazy IPA

I Am…

I am sensitive.

I am honest.

I am sincere.

I am not a pest.

I am my own person.

I am warm.

I really am funny. nice.

hopeful. energetic. giving.


sometimes selfish. sincere.

Generous. irritable. gay.

cute. interesting. intelligent.

poor. humble and outgoing.

I am Matthew Shepard.

About 'I Am' Poems

An ‘I Am’ poem is a simple form of a personal poem. It allows the poet to speak about themself—their unique traits, likes and dislikes, personal thoughts and feelings. To create a dynamic and interesting poem, the author should go beyond obvious descriptions of themself and tap into what is distinctive about them. I am poems can be simple or complex; they do not need to be any specific length or meter, nor do they need to rhyme.

Possibly the first published I am poem, “I Am!” was written by English poet John Clare in 1844. “Song of Myself” by American Walt Whitman was written in 1855 and included in his book Leaves of Grass.
