Poem From 10 Year Old Wyatt

I Am

I Am an Athlete
I wonder what people think of me
I hear people telling me to do better
I see people doing things perfectly
I want to be like them
I am an athlete

I pretend that someday I could be perfect
I feel perfection in the air but me floating around it
I touch the fear in the air inside me
I worry what I will be when I grow up
I cry when I know I could do better but I’m not at that point yet
I am an Athlete

I understand people are proud of me
I say to myself I could do better
I dream that I am perfect
I hope someday I will be
I am an Athlete

Note: This is a poem I wrote in the 5th grade at 10 years old. It won a special recognition in a writing competition.
