trying to be someone I’m not

so I decided to give up

trying to be someone I’m not

to be bigger better braver

my best picture perfect

I’m not

I choose to accept

what is

who I am


not later

no future project

no second guessing

but just – here

I take full responsibility

for my mistakes

my future past

my Self

And so it is

And I learn

to take my life

in my hands

be it tiny

I do

And so it is
