As I Am

I am a serious person.
My voice cannot sing on key,
squeaks when I'm scared,
is rarely raised in laughter.

My voice commands attention,
absorbs panic, stills a room,
questions, requires, tells truth.
I am a serious person

  1. I like this poem very much, how it goes full circle from first line to last. It seems right on, except I HAVE heard you laugh!

  2. You ARE a serious person... but I've also heard you laugh! SQUAWK!!! Well written, Victoria
