I Am

I am a teddy bear
nice, lovable, squeezable.

I am a picture
people stare at.

I am a candle
burning with ideas.

I Am

I am the perfume
that makes you smell good.

I am the pot
you burn all your hopes and dreams in.

I am the statue
that stares at you.

I Am

I am a book
you learn from.

I am a letter
you open up and read.

I am the grass
who lives and dies.

I Am

I am a piano
waiting to be played.

I am a T.V.
waiting to be controlled.

I am a radio
playing music for other people.

I Am
