I am who I am;

just as you are who you are.

Don't ask me to change

in order to be a part of your life.

If you are looking to change me

then I am obviously not for you.

Acceptance of quirks and foibles

is required and necessary,

because quite frankly, at this stage of the game

they aren't going anywhere.

They are simply part of the package

that makes up the whole.

Don't ask if I have baggage,

well duh,

I haven't lived my life in a box.

Don't expect every day to be happiness and sunshine.

Some days I slip into what I have named

beyond bitch mode.

There isn't necessarily a reason for this;

it just is.

The good thing is that it doesn't last.

Underneath all this though

lies the "me" that I shelter and protect.

This is the me that few will know

because they don't take the time to see.

Because in order to get there

takes patience, caring, understanding and time.

Things that so few are ready to give.

So there she will stay until

someone dares to brave the outer shell

and get to the person within.
