Who am I without technology?
Who am I behind the filters,
the makeup, the extravagant hairdos
and the overpriced clothing.
Who am I?
I am the rose in a garden full of lilies.
I am the white stripe to a painted black wall.
I am the gold lining to a silver ring.
What I’m trying to say is, I’m different.
And I’m okay with that.
I am a light in a room full of darkness.
But for some mind-blowing reason,
people still love and accept me
exactly for who I am.
I am happiness.
I am hope.
I am the loud, crazy, ambitious,
strong, smart, funny, humble,
religious girl that you don't find just anywhere.
I strive towards a better future.
I don’t take my days for granted,
because I know tomorrow is never
promised. I love unconditionally,
regardless of who the person may be.
I am a positive mind. I am unlike most.
I don’t fit into the social norm,
I never have, and I never will.
And I'm okay with that.
