There is a story inside me you may or may not know
I’ll try to explain it with a bit of rhyming flow.
This story runs deep, straight to the core
It begs for you to know me just a little bit more.
From my childhood to this adult like life
The girl, the friend, the lover, the mother and the wife.
I’ve been through the jungle and survived many a war
I’ve been lost but also found what I was looking for.
I’ve been held captive and I’ve known what it’s like to soar
I’ve found the keys and unlocked some doors.
Some right, some wrong
But through it all I have become ever so strong.
At times all I wanted to do was flee
But that wasn’t really me.
I’ve learned to conquer many of my fears
It has taken lots of practice and many years.
But here I am today as I stand
Offering you a welcoming hand.
Come into my world and see what I see
You’ll get a little glimpse of what it’s like to be me.
The many hats that I wear
The way it feels when people give you that stare.
The love that I give and the friends that I gain
And lets not forget how much fun it is when we dance in the rain!
From my hand to yours
I welcome you to know me just a little bit more.
