Am I?

Am I?
a beating heart,
or a drum,
seeking to find rhythm
my breath, a cadence
or my power;
my life,
my vibrancy, my longing.

Am I?
a flower wilting
in the hot sun
beating down on my brow
sweat pooling from
my exhaustion.

Am I?
weak in my strength
or capable in my weakness
please,
pass me some hope

Am I?
tall to you
or standing short
in my glory,
Is my height calculated,
by my merit?
Is merit even measured,
during a time when,
many are checked out?

Am I?
me
or am I a shadow of
the qualities,
that I call
myself
