Hello, my name is…

There are no shadows

I am whole and real

I can feel and I can run

I am not a shadow of my former self

I am not a development of a previous life

 

 

Hello, my name is…

The only constant is change

Hello, my name is…

The only constant is me

Hello, my name is…

I have no interest in stagnation

 

I am not the same as I was a year ago

I am not the same as the year before that

And the year before that

And the year before that

And the year before that

 

Hello, my name is…

I am tired and my eyes are clouded

Hello, my name is…

My head hurts and somebody is always screaming

Hello, my name is…

What’s the point you’re leaving anyway

 

I don’t want to be molded into your life

I don’t want to change the way my legs shake

I don’t want to get out of bed

 

I am nobody to most and everybody to myself

 

Hello, my name is…

A daughter, a student, a friend, an enemy, a lover, a poet, a liar, a secret, a mess, an angel, a devil, a worker, a talker, a shouter, a sister, insignificant.
