I am the happy one, who likes to eat chocolate ice cream.
I am the hyper, crazy one who might eat candy and drink coffee.
I am the easy going one, who would never say “No” to nobody.
I am the one with the scars and their secrets.
I am the messed up one, who thinks that it’s always my fault.
I am the helpless one who can’t change my life.
I am the hurt one but much more hurt on the inside.
I am the one with the scars, and I say, “No one talk back or be mean to me.”
I am the strong one, who is determined to change my life.
I am the dreamer, who imagines a different life, imagines a time when
I get to see what happens to me.
I am the childlike one, who remembers when my sister was playing
around with me.
I am the one with the scars, but they are not me,
And one day their meaning will be happy.
