My Own Creator

my-own-creator

This is a time in my life where I feel the most content


Not as much as when I was a kid


A smaller kid

and knew nothing but what I would eat that day

and who I would play with


That time in my life made it easy to be calm with time and its passing

Even excited by the idea of becoming something bigger than myself

Every day was an adventure because every day I legitimately learned something new


Some of those things were life-altering


When I realized my body wasn’t always going to be so weak

When I became aware of my mind's potential

When I saw how easily my hands took to my craft


I am not a person I dreamed of

or a hero I wished to become


I am a molded piece of clay

Sculpted by only my growing fingers


I am my own creator


Creating more than myself every day

I am proud to say I have begun the next chapter


The story after creation


The story of the journey

This is a very intelligent and well-written poem. We are actually responsible for the person we become, so yes, we are our own creator in many ways. Thanks for sharing, Carlie.
