My Name

Location

Ariël

It means, lioness of God

In Hebrew, not

The little mermaid

Despite popular belief…

 

In the Bible, I am Jerusalem,

And an angel who helps cure disease

In Shakespeare’s The Tempest

I am a mischievous Sprite

 

In my world, Ariël means

Energy, reticent, and swagger

In my dreams, Ariël means

Success, love, and Heaven

 

Ariël

Tastes like vanilla ice-cream

With cookie dough

Feels like silk sheets

With satin pillows

 

Ariël

Sounds like soft clouds

And perfection

Smells like baking cakes

And sea breeze

 

Ariël

Is learning to buck up,

And,

Is beginning to define…

Ariël

 

 

Ariël is trying to talk

To new people

And

Is proving to be

The paradigm example

Of unconditional love

 

I am Ariël

It’s nice to finally

Figure that out.

 

Ariël is a nerdy, geeky,

Overachieving, daring

(Yet hesitant) slightly arrogant

Person.

 

I am…

Tony Stark AND Steve Rogers

The Joker AND Batman

Einstein AND Clay Matthews

Pachelbel AND Beethoven

Buddy Holly AND Skrillex

Shakespeare AND Dr. Seuss

Beauty AND The Beast

 

I am Ariël
