                  Who Am I?

I am scared when _______________________,                                                                 but I’m brave when ___________________.

I am sad when ________________________,                                                                         but I’m happy when __________________.

I am excited when ______________________,                                                                     but I’m calm when ___________________.

I am serious when __________________,                                                                          but I’m silly when ___________________.

My feelings are deep.                                                                                                           My feeling are wide.                                                                                                             My feeling flow side by side.
