I Was

I Was

written by: Joseph K. Wells



I was never

the  fool I was taken for,
that ugly I was made to look,

that weak but beaten repeatedly,
that strong but withstood,

that human to heal wounds,
that divine to forgive,

that alive to live life,
that dead to not live.

I was not
hopeful in the destiny
of gods and stars.

I am just
the hopeless romantic
I always was.
