I Am Me

The walls are not as strong as they appear, 

Flawed with cracks and thin as paper. 

Exuding strength, they ward off anyone who is near.

What looks like stone is only vapor.

The smile that shines is genuine,

Reflecting her carefree nature.

Her adventureousness is like medicine,

For the fear of constant failure.

Intelligent with a watchful eye, 

She sees truths that are concealed.

Unable to stand by,

Her blunt wit is revealed.

No filter means no phony nonsense

Natural, honest and true.

No more facade I promise.

The walls fell and I flew.

The intelligent, caring, honest, and funny person I know, 

Will forever be set free.

I will not follow the status quo, 

Because I am me.
