    I am<br />
    by John Clare <br />
    <br />
    I am! yet what I am none cares or knows, <br />
    My friends forsake me like a memory lost; <br />
    I am the self-consumer of my woes, <br />
    They rise and vanish in oblivious host, <br />
    Like shades in love and death's oblivion throes; <br />
    And yet I am! and lived like shadows tossed <br />
    <br />
    Into the nothingness of scorn and noise, <br />
    Into the living sea of waking dreams, <br />
    Where there is neither sense of life or joys, <br />
    But the vast shipwreck of my life's esteems; <br />
    And even the dearest—that I loved the best— <br />
    Are strange—nay, rather stranger than the rest. <br />
    <br />
    I long for scenes where man hath never trod; <br />
    A place where woman never smiled or wept; <br />
    There to abide with my creator, God, <br />
    And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept: <br />
    Untroubling and untroubled where I lie; <br />
    The grass below—above the vaulted sky <br />
    <br />
    Ello, ello! I'm Misguided Royal, or any other nickname that I might be given! I am currently a junior in high school and sixteen at the moment. I'm an anime nut and enjoy reading, although I have been known to stay on the computer for... unhealthy amounts of time. I have other hobbies too.. like, uh, Netflix, the occasional short story... That's pretty much it for now.
