I am a person, a true human with flaws and weaknesses.
There are times when I fall to pieces.
But I get up. I move on.
There are bigger issues going on.
I am a fighter for what is right.
I have no pretenses. I am true to what meets the eye.
I will not be a doormat, not let others be.
I will probably not go down in history.
That's okay, the right people will remember me someday.
I am a leader.
I think then, act. At least, I try to.
On the outside I am cool, calm and collected. Inside I am mostly the same,
but in the moments I criticize myself, I am ashamed.
I overthink, worry and bottle it up.
I used to think that this made me tough.
Now I know that that's not the case.
I know I need friends who'll get in my face, and say "what is wrong?"
Every now and then, I need a shoulder to lean on.
If I've learned anything in this life,
it is that, no one can make it alone.
