Who I'm Not


I am not the popular girl.

I am not the cheerleader with pom poms.

I am not the burnout.

I am not the dropout who does drugs.

I am not the jock.

I am not the star athlete who's getting signed.

I am a girl.

I am the cuts and scars on my body.

I am my depression.

I am the anxiety I have.

I am my suicidal thoughts,

But that isn't all I am.

I am the strength put into Powerlifting.

I am the long runs in nature.

I am Christ conscience.

I am the magic and energy coarsing through my being.
