I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
My skin may not be perfect, I may have a few skin tags and moles.
My hair may not be beautiful and my wrinkles may show I am old.
I may be heavy on the gut and my butt not that awesome
I may even be an introvert, and my life and existence lonesome
I may have a few crooked teeth and my toes are not pretty at all
I may even be flat footed, and before my second step I am prone to fall
It is possible I am just a nerd and do not make friends with the school jocks
I may not be ontime all the time, After reading grandpa's old clocks
I may be sickly and can't partake in sports
I may simply be the clutz on the basket ball courts
I don't know how to fry chicken nor make a perfect stew
My clothes may just be a bit raggedy and my closet has nothing new
I don't follow fashion trends nor does my life resolve around the social media
But my life may be a sad love story on rewind playing on a multimedia
Despite all what I am not, I am proud of all that I am
I am me, there is no other version
I don't pretend to live in someone else's flesh
I walk my own path, I create my own footsteps
I am me, accepted and proud
My own spirit, my own character, with expression of happiness so loud
I will be the best me possible
My own destiny, my own actions I hold myself accountable
Nobodies shadow shall see me lingering behind
I accept me, I accept who I am, now it's time to shine.
