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
I’m the core of steel,
By determination, grief and God.
I’m tears at sappy movies,
Laugh out loud with books.
Words and music
Like the blood in my veins.
I believe the best,
Till worst is proven.
Faith is more than
infused into my heart.
Slow to anger,
And slower still
Enjoy the raunchy.
Brutal honesty is
Respect is earned.
And I push back…
Control is my strength
And my weakness;
I rarely let it go.
And try to never hate.
I may bend,
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.

Amen to that, Kitt.
Kitt – you are one remarkable and talented woman! Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of poetry and your fabulous photos of yesterday.
Grateful for YOU!
Thank you, Ande! You are awesome!
I’m one who digs this post! Beautiful words, beautiful photos.
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.
Love it! Father, painter, poet…quite the talent!
This is a beautiful song/poem. Love. And you sure are talented. We admire people who have talent, in any shape or form…
Awww! Thank you!
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.
Aww! Mae, I knew those things about you, just from the short time I’ve read your blog. It’s one of the most beautiful things about you. 🙂
Beautiful piece! And lovely pics. 🙂
The piano one’s so cute, you were lovin’ that piano! 😉
Aww, thanks! I was loving on music. 🙂
Wonderful walk thru part of your childhood. Thanks for sharing 🙂
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 🙂
I have a feeling that the inner you is quite beautiful as well! I can’t wait to see what you come up with for yourself.
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. 🙂
Painted with brush strokes on the canvas of who you are. Very nice.
Thanks, Sheri! I love that. 🙂
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 😛
Aw! Thanks, V! You know still waters run deep. 😉 Glad you like my pics!
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.
Thank you for you kind words.
Beautiful Kitt, as usual! You are all that and then some!
Aww! You’re all that and a bag of chips, LJ! Thanks for being such a wonderful support…always!
