I am whole.
But, not so whole that I can completely turn around
Look into the mirror and not find a reason frown.
I am a curious spirit,
In search for love and happiness and what it means to live with it.
Just curious, naive- no.
I understand that along my search, it is likely…
I’ll be let down and my heart could and will be broke.
I am confident, forgoing arrogance.
I am simply reassuring you of what I know.
I am a cup of emotion,
But not spilling over.
These carefully selected words and phrases spoken just to help you understand-
I am a man.
But, not so strong I can’t ask for a hand.
I am woman, but not one who needs a man.
I am good enough.
And that is all I need to be.
Because even after my telling people who I am…
People will still judge me.
