Start the sentence with I, add one of these words or phrases, and dig deep to finish the thought:…..am, want, have, wish, hate, fear, hear, search, wonder, regret, love, ache, always, usually, am not, dance, sing, never, rarely, cry, am not always, lose, am confused, need, should, dream…
Feel free to cut and paste and complete it any way you want. I was going to do a sentence for each of them, but this is what happened instead. Some muse or other took over and a kind of poetry happened.
What Am I?
I am old
But I want to stay young forever.
I have everything I need and yet
I wish for more.
I hate nothing but hate itself
And fear what it can do.
I hear only what I want to hear
And tune out all the rest.
I search inside for peace
And wonder if this is what it feels like.
Regretting nothing, loving fiercely,
Aching for time to slow down
While I’m running out of it.
Usually life makes me happy.
I am not complaining.
Even though I dance awkwardly
And sing off-key.
I never can stay sad for long
And rarely cry about anything
But I am not always brave.
I lose focus and become confused.
I need the quiet to bring things back
So I should appreciate it when it’s all around me.
Sometimes I dream so hard I can’t wake up.
