Poem: Being Me

IMG_2928 (3)


I could not help but find a story here… what a beautiful lean.


Being Me


It’s never easy

Growing sideways

In a world where

Everything is celebrated

Up and down.

The rules for standing

Etched upon my skin

And yet I bend

I waver

I lean.

I want to touch

the sun

With my

Outstretched limbs.

I want to sway

In the song

Of the breeze.

Some say,

Rules are meant

To be broken

Yet in truth,

They stand

In solid salute,

Their shadows


My paltry lean

And I can’t help but ponder,

What does it matter


Whether I stand still

Or I lean,

I cannot help

Being me.
