A while ago I was feeling lonely and lost living in a frenetic and impersonal world never quite feeling like I belonged.
Something was missing but what could it be?
It couldn’t be God, friends, boyfriend or family then one day I figured it out.
The emptiness was inside I was missing the full sense of me.
A self too narrowly defined, limiting because there are so many sides to me.
I have share of tears and fears, even doubts and insecurities.
I’m capable of greatness and goof-ups too.
I am princess wishing for a big stone castle.
I am Olympic champion, with silver, bronze and gold.
I am a daughter, sister, cousin, student and friend.
I’ve claimed all once missing part of me.
