I am wild, and passionate, and carefree.
I am expressive, emotional and extrovert.
I am strong, driven and articulate.
I am intelligent, philosophical and analytical.
I am aware, sensitive and compassionate.
I am political, unashamed and outspoken.
I am loyal, fierce and protective.
I am insecure, vulnerable and unsure.
I am all these things, and more.
I know who I am, and I am not afraid to be myself.
I am not afraid to ask for what I need.
I am not afraid to challenge what I see.
I am not afraid to speak out when I disagree.
I will not pretend.
I always bleed when I am cut, and I always fall when I feel weak.
Bottled up no more.
The Raven will caw;
“I am me, and you will see I will change this world. I will soar”.
I would rather be me, than a version I could pretend to be.
