I Am - Poem by Tlholohelo Ramatlhape

I am a product of my environment,
The result of my experiences
I am the depth of my valleys
And the height of my mountains

I am the smile on my lips,
And the laughter in my eyes
I am the velvety chocolate of my skin
And the dimple on my right cheek

I am an inspiration
A reflection of what is possible
I am my dreams
I am my past, my present, and my future

I am my compassion and my kindness
I am the tears I shed in grief
I am my courage and my strength
I am the love I give to others

I am a woman and a human being
I am not perfect and am slightly flawed
I am unique, different and beautiful
I am your sister, your daughter, your friend
