Michaela Pino – Youth Featured Poet

I am

I am the moon
And come from mother earth
I look in the mirror and see my reflection
In my dreams, i imagine being something else

I am emotional
I cry when people ignore me
But the sun makes me laugh
My love for others feels like
It’s falling apart

I am unpatient
It is unfair that people don’t notice me
I feel angry when people

think I am not the moon
If i could change one thing, it would be
my image

I am who I am
