Becoming Me

I am an artist,
Painting smiles on other people's faces.
I am a comedian,
Cheering up those having a bad day.
I am a ball of pent up energy,
Making memories with those who may not have the best ones.
I have the brightest smile,
Because I have seen the darkest darks.
I have the kindest eyes,
Because I have gotten through the saddest times.
I have the warmest heart,
For I have had to live with a man,
Whose heart has more ice than Antarctica.
I don't want others to suffer as I did,
So I do everything in my power to help those in need.
This is who I have become,
This is who I am,
And this is who I will always be.
