a daughter, a sister, a grand-daughter, a niece, a cousin, a friend, I am a partner, a young girl, and a grown woman. I am confident and unsure, terrified and excited. I am loving, and caring, and thoughtful, and hopeful. I am sick and tired. I am shy and friendly, and careful and careless. I am broken and whole, I am misunderstood, misguided, and misled. I am hard working and determined, but a little scared on the inside. I wish on stars and dream my dreams. I pray to God and cry my tears. I smile on the outside, while I’m dying on the inside. I listen to others who won’t listen to me. I believe in passion, and even true love. I am everything and nothing all at once.
