Artist's Description

Who Am I?

I am She!
I am you… I am me.
A girl, a new woman… young and old and aging.
Fragile, cute and girly, I am a pleasure.
Loyal, loving… educated, enlightened.
Weak, unable, frustrated, shackled
… confident and strong, headstrong … a headache
… a heartstring.
Extroverted, interactive, independant… a loner
… clingy, needy, reliant… hard work!
Brave, curious, open, extreme… radical… conforming…
I am vulnerable!
Protected…
blinkered, denied a voice
ridiculed, doubted, quieted… stifled
I am facing the world.
I am social… withdrawn, quiet
… wicked and wild… pushing boundaries.
Moody, loud, defiant
I am type-cast.
I am sorry!
Clever, questioning, easily led
I am craving
to learn, to experience, to live… to love
Wishing for caring arms, sympathetic ears
I am innocent, naive, trusting… abused
Fearing rejection, denial… acceptance, heartache
guidelines, rules, freedom, choice… reality.
I am joyous, optimistic, exstatic… broken, sarcastic, critical
… shattered!
I am soft and sweet… funny, giggly
an individual with thoughts and feelings
… expressing myself!
I am gaining a knowledge of my future,
finding my journey… a vision of my destiny.
I am living, learning
… growing.
I am woman… I am a little girl.
I am 13.

I must thank Berns for the inspiration for this piece. :o)

Photo manipulation using layers of my own photography, including one of our own 13 year old daughter. I showed her this poem and she declared it ‘cool’… that’s all the praise I need.
