(holga- December, 2009)
"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are."
I am currently learning this lesson,
day by day.
For reasons that are, I'm sure, quite logical,
I've slipped back into a place of lots of questions and thoughts
regarding who I am and who I was
and why this life I have now looks the way it does.
(And, for the record, I had no intention of piecing together that last sentence to rhyme.)
I want to believe that I am able to be loved.
I want to believe that someone will some day value me because of who I am,
and not just because of who they want me to be.
I want this.
I just need more of that reckless courage,
