I Am...

I was shy,

and closed

when it came to conenecting

with the people around me.

I was quiet,


and uncomfortable in my own skin

until it came to my first,

high school love.

I slowly learned how to express myself

and how to comfortaly recieve the feeings

of someone else.

I became someone

who understood what it meant

to put someone before yourself

and I became someone

who truly felt deep warmth

towards another.

I not only valued Jake,

but I began to value myself.

Through falling in love with someone,

I somehow found myself.

I am now cordial

and confident.

I am me.
