i am fourteen years old.
i am not who i am by manifestation.
i am brewed by those who know me,
those who love me, those who knew me.
i am not big enough.
i am not listened enough.
but i know i am smart enough.
yes, i am but of fourteen years of age.
but i do not forget that i am shaped by many mouths.
many ears, many noses, and many hands.
i keep up with those of elder.
i am a keeper of secrets and lies and betrayals of manipulation.
i do not doubt my own antics and anticipations.
my spirit and my soul are not purified.
my heart is shared within all.
a bit, by bit to those of others.
and a little something extra to whoever wants it.
i am only fourteen years of age.
and i am a volume of blessings, blood, and beliefs,
more than i am a person.
