I am whole

But not so whole that I can completely turn around

Look into the mirror and not find a reason for momentary sadness.

I am a curious spirit

In search for love and happiness and what it means to live with it.

Only curious

Not naive

I understand that along my search it’s likely

I’ll be disappointed and my heart could be broken.

I am confident

But never arrogant

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 are spoken to help you understand

I am a man

But not one so strong I can’t ask for a hand

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.
