I Am Me


Who am I? 

My birth name is Shelby. 

But that's changed over the years; shrimp, chipmunk, penguin, shorty.

School was rough. Not always fitting in. 

Graduation set me free.

Now - I am me.

Just a few years have passed. 

I've set out to make my own path and what I will be remembered for.

She was brilliant, sharp and cheerful, such a hard worker.

Dedication is all they'll see.

Now - I am me.
