I am- poem by Kalanzi Kajubi-12 years old

I am a persevering person who enjoys drumming.

I wonder where I will be in 2020.

I hear a steady beat tapping in unison with my heart.

I see a world with no errors.

I want to live a life for those around me and not for me alone.

I am a persevering person who enjoys drumming.

I pretend that I am in the many books that I read.

I feel that I will accomplish much in life.

I touch keys on a piano and I play my self away.

I worry that my grandfather will die before he sees me succeed.

I cry for all the dying people in the world.

I am a persevering person who enjoys drumming.

I understand that life will not always be as easy for me as it is now.

I say that if you put your mind to it you can reach any goal.

I dream of being the next Donald Trump.

I try to live my life to the fullest before my life is over.

I hope to see a woman president before I die.

I am a persevering person who enjoys drumming.

I like this poem. That repetition works for me. It's something like "I am a blogger who likes blogging"
