She is summer and winter all in one
The breeze that reminds you of the scorching sun
A snowstorm that freezes all that comes her way
The drought that killed those who wanted to stay.
She is a lone wolf lost in the dark forest
A pilgrim who is looking for a place to rest
A wildflower thriving after the heavy rain
A wounded soldier that tries to hide her pain
She is a Queen in a kingdom no one has ever heard
The lover of a Hero her people have cursed
The painting no one wants to understand
The beggar they have stoned yet still tries to stand
She is a comet the universe forgot to ignite
The poem you wish you were able to write
An unread book at the back of the shelves
Not waiting to be read by someone else.
She may contradict herself in so many ways
Like a diamond you thought won’t easily break
And though she is a fragile piece at twenty-five,
She will always stand tall and eager to survive.
SHE IS ME
