Who I Am…

20121129-140915.jpg

I’m smiles of welcome
That warms my eyes.
A clever tongue
Wielded like a sharpened knife
Or rich sweetness of honey…
The choice is always
Yours.
I’m the core of steel,
Honed
By determination, grief and God.
I’m tears at sappy movies,
Laugh out loud with books.
Words and music
Flow
Like the blood in my veins.
I believe the best,
Till worst is proven.
Faith is more than
Lip service;
infused into my heart.
Slow to anger,
And slower still
To forget.
Work hard,
Play harder….
Enjoy the raunchy.
Brutal honesty is
Valued,
Respect is earned.
Push
And I push back…
Harder.
Control is my strength
And my weakness;
I rarely let it go.
I love
Without reservations
And try to never hate.
I may bend,
Sometimes fall,
But will never be broken.

I’ve seen lots of posts about letters to yourself…or descriptions of where you’re from, and I’ve loved them…but they weren’t quite right for a girl who’s from everywhere. So I decided to try to write about who I am. There’s a song by Jessica Andrews called Who I Am that inspired my vision.

I’ve decided to accompany this post with a few pictures from my youth… Like the one below… My first piano lesson. 🙂

Or my goofy, funky attempt at clashing…

Or showing a bit of my inner wild child/biker chick.

And finally, a little Glamour Shot that most people who know me call my flirty look…aka trouble just walked in…

So tell me…who are you? What makes you tick at the core? Feel free to critique…I love feedback.

    I am shy and unsure, yet at the same time fast with my words at times. I am the watcher, calm calculating and methodical but at the same time a hopeless romantic. I am forever giving to a fault. But hopelessly suspicious of others. Gentle yet firm. I am a father, friend, painter, poet, protector.

    Who am I at heart? A dreamer, romantic and idealist. Alawys have been, always will be.

    Loved your poem, but really loved the photos. So much fun. The two together tell the story of who you are.

    Wow I like your – about you- poem, what a great idea! I’ll write something about me when I feel inspired too. You really have been the inner wild kat ever since young 🙂 Beautiful photos to reminisce about 🙂

    Ah, Kitt, I haven’t been able to stop for awhile and I missed you. So glad I came today to catch this amazing poem about you! You are one sexy, smart and strong woman!

      Thanks, Marcia! I’m so glad you were able to stop. It means the so much to me to know that you enjoyed it. You’re not the only one who hasn’t had much time to visit blogs… I’m in catch up mode, too. 🙂

    you seem nice
    but yes, you have that dynamite hidden somewhere feel too 😛
    no one knows where the detonator is… ha, ha

    I like the clashing and flirty look
    and that purple get up.. ooh… fabulous! 🙂

    I’m a simple guy with insane tastes!

    And passion is what makes me go limp 😛

    I am a lover of creativity, resilience, and honesty, which is why I love this poem/introduction/biography. Thank you for sharing the depth of who you are with us.
