I am a wanderer
I allow myself to explore the outer reaches of my mind and world
whether that be through music, books, movies or my own two feet
I imagine oceans, mountains and life
the fluid everyday motions of a complex reality
where people move past each other in the restless business of a city
because the vividness with which I create stories for the people that pass me by
feel me with hope, uncertainty, a greater sense of morality.
It is through my books that I theorize the endless possibilities life holds,
and it is through movies I connect these theories with faces and emotion.
I am a creative creature,
words move me the way a beat moves a dancer, the way the wind moves leaves in the trees when the sun is rising on a crisp summer morning and the possibilities are endless.
I am a person of value, a person who recognizes the pain a mirror built by societal expectation can inflict on victims who do not see the value in their beauty.
I am a person who seeks wonderland in her everyday life, and breathes in the smell of autumn to keep her calm.
A person confused by the restlessness of our generation and the need to equalize our value to our level of importance on social media.
A person who seeks every opportunity to build not tear someone else down
I am woman, a girl, a student, a human who is not defined by a picture, a post, or a filter.
