Poem: Authentic Me

I am confident and strong in my breath and my gate,

I cherish sincerity, honesty, and the ability to communicate.

My smile is a welcome, my laugh is for enjoying,

my anger is like thunder, and my silence a forewarning.

Do not speak of lies, as I have no time to waste,

I crave a friendship that is deep, true and ornate.

I may journey alone, together, or in a group,

I am just as happy as an only soldier,  my very own troop.

Should our paths cross, should our roads collide,

I will happily welcome you in as I have nothing to hide.

I am who I am, I am who I chose to be,

I answer to one name, that name is authentic me.
