I sometimes try to convince
myself that I am not (applicable term)
That I am not a devil.
That I am not a freak.
That I am not a lost soul.
But, I try.
I try often.
I mull through all the things that make me, me.
And, I always come back to the same conclusion.
This is me.
This is who I am.
I cannot reason my way out of this.
And, I won’t apologize for who I am.
I may apologize for some things I have done,
some paths I took to get here and
some paths I have yet to take,
But, I promise.
I won’t apologize for who I am.
