                     I am abnormal
                                        I am different
                                                            I am strange
        I am not a copy
                               I am insane
                                                    I am slightly short tempered...
                      
    I am an outcast
                         I am a jackass
                                         
                                              I am an idiot
    
                  I am awesome
                                       I am not perfect   
                                                              And never will be
      

                        Please don't try to change me
      
            I like who I am

                                
                                I am simply
        
                                    Me
Dude...I don't have any idea why this even got popular...This isn't one of my favorite poems I've written...It's stupid...But whatever...Nothing I can change...

I really like this. I have to do a school project in L.A class where I have to find and write poems. Do you mind of I use this one? You would get full credit, I would make sure my teacher knew where I got it from ( If you want i could also not do these things if that's how you work) I'd have to take out the line that says I'm a jackass because the word ass is not approved at my school. It would help a lot and I wont use it if you don't want me to. Thanks ^_^

Consistency is why it got popular, the theme was how you aren't any defined shape and the shape of the poem is undefined, also the lines that don't fit with I am ____ like the short tempered line...help to deconstruct the repetitive nature enough to make the writing fit the theme as well. Add that to the fact that everyone can resonate with the message, and its easy to read, with a straightforward message, and bam. Popularity. thats my theory anyway.

And look, Beethoven said the same thing about this: [link]

Sure, but I would refrain from more resemblances to Beethoven, he had a very difficult depression and went deaf.

...Good luck :D

This poem is fitting, especially in the midst of angst or self-recognition stages. I think that it speaks to a lot of people, and hence, why it is popular.

As a writer, I envy you. :D
