I Am... Me


When I think of what life would be like if I was different.
A person more outgoing and courageous.
Someone who isn't afraid and not ashamed of being herself.
One who can let go and not feel inferior to the ones she holds dear.
To be able to talk easily to more than one person at a time and
not be embarrassed that I'll do or say something to push people away.

But when I think of this, it's showing my true fears which hold me back from seeing who I really am, a good friend; one who is loyal and kind.
One who can shine just as bright as ones in the limelight.
One who can be free and have fun and jump into a conversation while being on the beat of a different drum.

Even when I'm insecure, I love me and I swear I'll strive to be the best me I can be.

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
