I am what I am

Placed - 2nd 
Members Contest - "I am" sponsored by Paula Swanson

I am what I am
Accept or reject

I am intelligent
Avail or envy 

I am caring
Love or hate

I am short-tempered
Endure or ignore 

I am happy-go-lucky
Enjoy or mourn

I am loved
Love or hate

I am pious
Pray or complain

I am self-made
Strive or laze

I am successful
Follow or backbite

I am respected
Respect or malign

I am winner
Felicitate or criticise  

I am chosen one
Like HIM or blame HIM

Choice is yours
I am what I am
