The “I” That Writes These Words

The Letter I

I am the evil I rail against
I am the vanity I see everywhere
I am the target of my own invective
I am the skulking shadow of cowardice
I who approach these words do so in fear
I who fail almost as often as I try
I who wanted always to be a hero
I who cannot change the world’s ways
I can, however, keep trying
I can succeed, albeit occasionally
I can be a hero in never giving up the fight
I can make today a better day than yesterday
