Because I am

Because I am, I am beautiful

Because I think, my mind spinning with thoughts and equations swirling twisting in my mind in unfathomable cycles

Because I can read

Because there are worlds in my eyes and songs on my fingertips

Because I dance

Because my body sways, moving with rhythms that bounce across the walls and brush my skin

Because I feel

Because my hearts aches and my head spins

Because I love more than I am loved and I cry when I hurt

Because I hurt

Because the world can break me sometimes, the weight of the waves pulsing at my spine and my muscles, trying to push me down but I

Stay up

Because I live

Even if I sometimes don't want to

Even if I sometimes forget

I am

Beautiful
