If I had the power to become anything in the universe, I'd become a star.

Brianna Anderson is

Who I was, and I 

Was ashamed, but even

Then I was, and to

This day, I am, the

Personification of pure

Unadulterated happiness

And beauty, no longer

Dangerously compressed 

Into form, I am loud,

And i am not ashamed,

I am wild, and I 

Am not ashamed , I 

Will speak and dance

And sing and I will no

Longer be ashamed, my

Laugh will carry, but

No longer will I be

Embarrassed, my spirit

Whether angry or

Overjoyed will no longer be

Caged, appearance be 

Damned, I am no longer 

Ashamed, my entire

Being whether conscious

Or unconscious

Revolves around my

Heart and my brightness 

Increases, luminosity

Explosive, a supernova 

Is what I am, and I

Am not ashamed.

A great attitude to have. Nicely written; the short lines suit this perfectly.
