Who I am….. a poem.

I’m sure I have said here before how much I adore my sister.  She is who I want to be when I grow up.  I look to her and my mom as my “mothering-role models”.

Of course her children are AMAZING people, people I would happily do just about anything for.  So when her oldest needed a public space she could publish a poem about herself, I was happy to help.

Actually, I’m pretty please that I have a space where I feel comfortable sharing this, and that she felt comfortable asking.  I know that you all are such kind loving people, you will shower her with praise. 🙂

Who I Am

By: McKinlay O.

I am unique
I know
I dream
I love

I know crying helps you feel better
I know belting out songs at the top of your lungs, is healthy
I know listening is the greatest quality
I know dancing hard is rejuvenating
I know that YOU make your name meaningful
I know baby clothes and shoes are to die for
I know what people think of me doesn’t matter
I know that I am loved

I dream that I’ll travel the world
I dream that someday I’ll get my perfect kiss
I dream that one day I’ll own horses
I dream that I’ll live in an adorable cottage
I dream that one day I’ll be a momma
I dream that someday I’ll wear a vintage bikini

I love sunshine showers
I love twirling in a flowy skirt on warm beautiful days
I love long hugs
I love playing in the rain
I love bread, and all food
I love getting carried away in a good book
I love gentleman who dress nice
I love all things vintage
I love who I am
Why? Because…
I am unique
