Who Am I?

Dibbs

 

Today our Year 1 CYM students are thinking about the therapeutic uses of play. We wanted to share the following poem with you that one of the students wrote in response to reading a book called Dibbs in Search of Self, which explores this idea.

 

Who Am I…

I

I am no one, a wanderer forced to stay on this plane

I am everything, what I touch and see, what I taste

I am hidden and unavailable and silent

I am obvious

I am here and I am shouting my name

I am invisible

You hate me, I hate myself

You love me, I have to learn to learn to love

One helps another to grow

We learn together,

We grow together,

An age passes

I see me differently

You see me differently

We see me differently

I am a voice that commands attention

I am a person who is there

I am a boy
