I think...

...that my outsides match my insides.
At one point insecurity overwhelmed me, I didn't see my worth.
As I've grown and recognized the beauty within me, within everybody, among the trees, the sky, every ELEMENT bigger than I-
I have too, grown more beautiful.
As I've slowly learned to let go of bitterness, of negativity, of judgment, my life has become enriched.
And this shows.

I am not perfect, on the inside nor on the outside.
But I AM by and large a good, strong woman and my appearance matches this.
I much prefer this to being a "perfect 10" with nothing to back it up, to back ME up.
In imperfection lies beauty.
For 2011- improve, assist, learn, grow, and love cautiously yet fearlessly.

I burn to be consumed, I ache to be exhumed
Inside I hold the sunrise you've coaxed out of me too soon
The push and pull is too much for my w(e)ary head to weather
My thirst- to be free as the breeze, My hunger- a sturdy tether

A Poem, I Guess

If you need to be a free bird I don't want to clip your wings
You can fly around the Earth, come back and tell me real things
I may do the same as you but take a different route
To ensure our tales will never leave us feeling we've been cooped
