Behold: I AM

I do not profess to be a leader

A teacher, nor a prophet;
I am not a god, although I embraced my inner goddess centuries ago.
I am broken, and I am weak
I am fragile, but I am strong
I am fierce—I am fire.

I am a fucking warrior,
And everything in between—
I am perfect chaos.

My beliefs lie somewhere between
Buddhist and Baptist;
I am contradiction.
I am want; I am need.

I am thirsty for truth,
I love, I lust, I desire.

I am stained glass
Vibrant color and light;
I am laughter, I am joy
I am darkness and despair.

I have fought fierce battles
Slain demons and dragons.

I am life,
And I will always overcome.
