A POEM

I have been looking for this poem for a while now. The poem is titled "I AM" I remember it very well. I wrote it in Mr. Artherhults English class. It meant a lot to me at the time I wrote it. Anyways, enjoy. It is dated 08/03

I AM
I AM changed and I am different, but will anyone ever know?
I WONDER when I sleep at night if what I do will show.
I HEAR the people all around; they shout his name without a care.
I SEE them hurting way down deep their pain is much to bare. Can I stand up and preach your love and tell them my God is there?
I AM changed and I am different, but will anyone ever know?
I PRETEND to act like I am someone i'm not, you always let me see, how foolish I am, and how selfish I act, and bring me to my knees.
I FEEL your loving presence and I strive to be like you.
When I pray I TOUCH your hand, and feel your love is true.
I WORRY they won't hear the truth and I know what I must do.
I CRY for the wicked that hate you and I want to bring them through, the never-ending tunnel, which Satan brought them to.
I AM changed and I am different, but will anyone ever know?
I UNDERSTAND the Bible and I know it teaches truth.
I SAY I love the Lord, my God, but am I living proof?
I DREAM of your Heaven, and can hardly wait to walk down the street's of gold.
I TRY to be a witness, but sometimes i'm just not that bold.
I HOPE I share with all who must be told, for everyone can have his grace, men and women, young and old.
I AM changed and I am different, but will anyone ever know?
