M.E.M.

I am

Clever as a fox,

As radiant as the stars.

 

A geek,

devouring graphic novels and Sci-fi

Passionate about basketball and Theatre,

Playing the part becoming a different part of me through every costume change.

Each costume, each game, a different part of me is reveled.

 

Yet, I am jagged around the edges,

Like the inside of a stone wall.

every edge is its own tiny mountain, beautiful in its own way.

Every quirk shoots out,

Nothing can smooth me down.

 

Not your run-of-the-mill girl, but

I am Mack, McAnear, Kenzie, Maddie, Macintosh, Mackenzie. 

A water mill rotating, each orbit is a new me, a different side of me.

Diverse, and I love that.

 

I am.

    your words reminded me of John Clare
    one of my all-time favourite Poet's
    and his poignant poem, 'I am!':
