Being Me

Words flow in and out as I speak of what I know.

Quotes and lyrics emerge from my light lips.

I sing stories of dreams and nightmares.

My stomach rumbles and does flips.


I'm determined to break free.

Pushing boundaries keeps me ahead.

I want to show the world what needs to be heard.

Instead I sleep fitfully in my bed.


Persistance leads to my very best.

Determination helps me get through it.

Without trust I would fall fatefully down.

It is love that pulls me out of that pit.


The world is such a spectacular place,

But sometimes I want to give up.

I have to continue moving forward,

And have the courage of a newborn pup.
