I am, I can, I will- Jennifer Leigh Young

"I AM- two small words, and yet

It’s a powerful place in which to be.

It's my life and I'm living it,

I am everything you see.

 

I am responsible for my actions,

And all the things I say and do.

I am responsible for my behavior,

And how I interact with you.

 

I am responsible for the level of my work,

And the choices that I make.

I am responsible for the values I profess,

And for the ways I communicate.

 

I CAN- two small words, and yet,

It's a powerful place in which to be.

It's my life and I am living it,

Traveling the land, sky, and sea.

 

I can earn the respect of others,

And gain their friendship true.

I can honor all things living, and

Take care of my mind, health, and body too.

 

I can do my best each day,

And I can know my best is great.

I can continue to progress

And move closer to my fate.

 

I WILL- two small words and yet,

It's a powerful place in which to be.

It's my life and I am living it,

I'll be everything just wait and see.

 

I will use my talents wisely,

Learn to manage the moods of life.

I will respect my ups and downs,

Ask for help in overcoming strife.

 

I will is a promise to see clearly,

It reveals my strength to win.

As I arrive at mutual resolutions,

And look for my answers from within.

 

I'm young, still learning, growing, changing,

Yet I have ideals, noble goals and plans.

For things like a healthy environment,

World peace and a crime-free land.

 

No longer a child, yet not an adult,

I am a teenager still.

But don't underestimate my value,

Because I am, I can, and I will."


i found this poem in a "self help" book someone gave me to feel better.  the poem was actually in tasteberries for teens, but i wrote it down and put it in my book because it gave me motivation.  i still cant believe i still had it.
