In your boxes I don’t fit,
You can’t force me to mold.
My life is more than just a skit,
A great story untold
Without your petty definitions,
I’m simply a girl on a mission
Big dreams for this world, I have in sight,
But I’m just a girl who likes to write.
Geek and nerd may be what you see,
Free-spirited and beautiful is really me.
A girl who knows just what she needs,
Strong cups of tea and books to read.
One simple life a have to live,
More than simple, what I have to give.
Outpourings of love for those unseen,
My life is more than just routine.
Without the mask, with skin stripped bare,
The world can see how much I care.
One thing I know to be true is this:
When set free from limits, life’s purely bliss.
With no weight to bare, on shoulders small,
I am a girl who stands very tall.
At five foot one and just a smidge,
Every experience leaves me enriched.
Free from the confines of who I’m told to be,
I can finally say, I’m simply me
