Today I am Not a Sad Poem

Today I am tears of joy

Triumphs on a mountaintop

Autumn leave and funny T-shirts

Today I am shaking knees

Giggles for no reason

I am songs hummed to no one

The squeak of new shoes

Today I am everything that 12 year old me wished I would become and everything that 80 year old me will be proud of.

I am myself

Fully and completely

Unapologetically and wholeheartedly

And I’ll be damned if I let anyone tell me otherwise
