Favorite Quote:
Life is a shipwreck, but we must remember to sing in the lifeboats. Voltaire

do You know who i am?
i am.
i skip and jump,
dance in circles.
i leap and twirl
i laugh
i cry
i sit motionless
i won’t move,
won’t explain
i am silent.
i was silent,
i sing loudly now.
i twist and shake and
lost in the moment.
capturing the moment
for what it really is.
do you know who i am?
i am a was
i was an am
i was a not.
i’m not a was
i circle around,
blending the fine line between
i wasn’t always
i won’t always be.
do you know who I am?
i’m not special
i’m precious.
i’m not loved
i’m valued.
i’m not.
but I can wait my turn.
I am.

The author's comments:
I often hear people say " be the best you that you can be". One day, I heard this and started thinking-who I am. This is my journey in self discovery.
