This. is Me.
I ain’t necessarily skinny, or perfect, or predictable.
I have my flaws, and Oh! they are many, and I can name them all.
I am a survivor of terrible things, but also a thriver –
I want new, different, and scary, all outside these walls.
I offer myself, unreservedly, to those who will care to listen,
Whether tiny, or medium, or tall tall tall.
My hero is Joan of Arc, because tho’ she did end on a burning stake,
She didn’t go quietly, or actually – at all.
Her energy was transformed to spirit and became legend and large,
And she forged a path and answered His call.
So when I am a ghost and my visage is faded from your view,
I want my legacy to be “CANNON BALLLLLLL!”
