I amMature

I am
a lot of things
a little
out of my mind
somewhat
outspoken
honest
and
on fire.
I am
full of spirit
aware
of what
my brain holds
A little
icy
to cool it down
relaxed
to keep it mellow
I am
loud
and tend to sing
at the top of my lungs
I know
where I stand
in my world
who I am
perhaps not yet
who I will be
but
it’s enough
I am
a lot of things
but I am not
weak
I am not
unimportant
I am not
a savior
not
someone
in the background
I exist
I am as real
as anyone
before me
I am
as strong
as ten women
not in strength
but in will
I do not
need to save
anyone but myself
I am not
a blacked out name
or cut up photo
I am
a lot of things
but I am not
a lie
a figment
a desperation
a charity
I am me
I exist
I am not a toy
a weaving thread
until you get
what you want
I am not
a claw machine
I am
so many things
but most of all
I am real.
I do not
hang on a thread
waiting to be
cut down
or given another string
I am
my own manuscript
I am
a never-ending movie
I am
a fucking Queen.

The End
