I am 

There are a lot of things I used to be that I am no longer.

I am no longer a night owl, but rather I dream of a bed time at 7pm.

I’m still not a morning person though, either, and that is okay.

I am no longer blissfully unaware of things. 

I am no longer a rush-out-the-door with just a card, my phone and keys; adventurer to go wherever life takes me 

I am no longer a 5 hour getting ready for a perfect evening 

I am no longer a thank-fuck-it’s-Friday, and drinking to the weekend. 

I am no longer reckless, and careless 

I am no longer a blunt smoker at the back of a pool hall with randoms

I am no longer a sleep all day Sunday and breakfast at 3pm at a loud cafe

I am no longer a 1 hour shower

I am no longer so bored I wish for something to do.

I am no longer a person with countless friends, 

But I am no longer a solo person. 

But there are a lot of things that I’d never thought I’d be but I am unexpectedly am. 

I am a person who made life

I am a person who manages tiny feelings

I am a person who has learned to confront feelings that come up when I manage tiny feelings 

I am someone who can feed another life

I am someone who can nurture and love 

I am someone who can spark imagination with a cardboard box and some crayons

I am someone’s safe place 

I am a chef, a lover, a wife, 

I am a mother 

I am never solo, I am whole. 

There are a lot of things that I used to be that I am no longer, and there are a lot of things that I’d never thought I’d be that I am unexpectedly am.
