Who Am I?

I'm Lost

Who Am I?

I decided to choose this photo because I knew exactly who I was

I chose this photo because it was taken in the most blissful moment.

Can I share something with you?

I honestly have no clue who I am at this point.

I've lost touch with myself.

Yesterday I cried in the shower and had to cover my mouth

because the noises escaping my were louder than the running water.

I stood there letting the water fall on my skin

I stood there emotionless.

I realized something.

My hard work has always gone unnoticed.

I thought the work I put in was enough

but I was proved wrong by a beloved teacher.

Thank you for telling me I wasn't good enough.

I wanted to give up because of you.

Why try anymore?

That question ate at me for days.

During those days, I wasn't myself

Yet, no one noticed the change in my smile.

No one noticed my eyes watering with tears.

I blended.

Thank you for checking up on me.

Through it all, I found the answer.
