NookieRookie is one of our versatile floating supervisors and a bronze contributor to boot. He describes himself as being born in the mid-60’s, acting like he’s 16, looking like he was born in the early 70’s, and feeling like he was born in the early 1900’s!
When he was a senior in high school, he forgot to do his poetry homework one day and had five minutes before class to come up with something. This is what he came up with (not bad for a rush job, I’d say!). Ironically, he notes this was the only poem he ever got an “A” on.
“I am what I am”, by NookieRookie
I am what I am, if I weren’t that’s not what I’d be.
If I was what I wasn’t, it wouldn’t really be me.
If you are what you aren’t, then it really isn’t you.
So just be yourself, that’s the best you can do.
People go through life, being what they’re not.
Realizing too late, they really missed a lot.
They were what they weren’t, so their friends never knew,
what was really inside of a person like you.
