Who I Was Meant to Be

Personal (Hope)

For the first time in all my years,
I feel like I’m coming out of my shell
and letting the world see me
for who I really am.


I’ve been hurt, and kept it all inside;
but for once, I’m opening up
and giving myself the chance
to truly experience life.


I know there is so much more
to the hiding and being afraid.
There is more to me than
how people have labeled me.


I know I have beauty inside me,
just trying to shine through.
I can rise above my fears,
and become who I was meant to be.
