I Am

11 Dec

I am a person. Not the colour of my skin, the texture of my hair, or the shape of my face, but a person.

I am a child of the universe.

I am an individual. I am unique.

I am more than the sum of my parts or the physical ranking of beauty based on widely held standards.

I am an artist and a lover and a fighter. I am everything I could be and everything I should be.

I am greater than the troubles ahead of me and stronger than the darkness that threatens me.

I come from a family of givers and proudly embrace my heritage of love and openness.

I am at peace with my person and at no one’s mercy for my pleasure.

I am bound only by my expectations and not beholden to live by the rules of anyone else.

I am obligated only to speak my truth and free to raise my voice against manipulation and/or oppression.

I am worthy of love, respect, consideration, and joy.

I am worthy of sharing my thoughts and experiences.

I am worthy of kindness and support.

I am worthy.

I am.
