I am a creative, Not a consumer
Not without goals, Not a dreamer whose lost
I am an outside the box thinker
Yet not a person unwilling to view reality’s cost.
I am a lover, and I’m hungry
Hungry to be loved like one of a kind.
I am a person who is intelligent
And I know that my body is a place for my spirit and mind.
So I am woman, I am adult
I’m a child who once was lost but now is found.
I am a worker, who is able
And when I see the work I’ve done, I feel so proud.
I am topline, not at the bottom
And my work consistent, beautiful and true
I am the person who is working
To find the best version of me and you
So if I falter, if I fall down,
please excuse the mess that I have made
It seems no matter how far I’ve made it
I still have some things that keep me afraid.
So, I am student, I am teacher
I am someone who is proud to walk beside
Any person, who despite shortcomings,
Has stood up tall and tried and tried and tried.
