I am the woman who clutches her purse a little tighter when a man walks by.
I am the administrator behind the scenes, helping everything run smoothly.
I am the colleague who wants recognition.
I am the wife who tries to please her husband while maintaining her own happiness.
I am the jilted lover crying in the shadows.
I am the nerd, researching things that no one cares about anymore.
I am the sheltered child who doesn’t know enough.
I am the old soul singing to Fitzgerald, Sinatra, and Crosby.
I am the dancer with the full hips when that Latino beat drops.
I am the unloved creature when I hear the guitar of rock and heavy metal.
I am the star-crossed optimist when I hear the twang of country.
I am the friend who is always there to listen.
I am the mouth that sometimes says things it shouldn’t.
I am the reader who craves the classics.
I am the writer trying to bring back the style.
I am the student who follows the rules.
I am the rebel that does things her own way.
I am the daughter that should try harder.
I am the mother that does too much.
I am the driver who will go anywhere as long as it’s away from here.
I am the homebody who needs security and a place to call my own.
I am the one who remembers the small, insignificant details.
I am the one who will forget your name ten seconds after you’ve said it.
I am the overthinker who can’t let go of the past
I am the romantic dying for a better future.
I am the heart that lays open upon the sleeve of a person who wants to be accepted.
I am the one with my shields up high, shunning hopes and dreams.
I am the teenager shouting out, but no one hears a word.
I am the adult who knows that screaming will get me nowhere.
I am the quiet one who dreads to be approached.
I am the desperate one who needs to know they matter.
I am bleeding.
I am healed.
I am broken.
I am whole.
I am tired.
I am alive.
I am weak.
I am strong when I want to be.
I am… me.
