Or Something Like That - Poem by Jade Leven

I think I know exactly why I am here
I think I know exactly why I am her...
the girl with the pen behind her ear
there's absolutely nothing I have to infer

I am a writer
and I am a person who is
both weak and strong
both happy and sad
the years have been long
in the life I have had

I've said goodbye
to people and things
tossed away in the autumn breeze
gracefully fluttering away
and for someone as sentimental as myself
it is beautiful in a certain way
because I have the privilege to say
that I loved him
or I held that
or I befriended her
or I owned that
it amazes me still

I think I know exactly why I am here
I think I know exactly why I'm her...
the girl with nothing to hide, but everything to fear
who lived quietly ever after, except on the paper

or something like that
