Who Am I?

by Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

In response to RXC PROMPT #244, hosted by Renee

I am love
I am rage
I am compassionate
I am merciless

Aid the young
Assist the old
Coddle the injured
Oppose the aggressor

I am weak
I am firm
Use my voice
Fight right and wrongs

Shy to speak
Bold when needed
Introvert to most
Extrovert to others

Mother
Lover
Enemy
Friend

Strong as an arrow
Quick to bend
Patient and kind
Relentless and cruel

Never just one
Always each one
Much more to decipher
Who am I to you?

    I see how difficult is it to summarise yourself in few words. But it’s done brilliantly.
