My Paradoxical Self

Mad

She’s a match that’s quick to light

that’s not hard to put out.

Short tempered, but quick to forgive.

Merciful

 

Insecure

She’s a puppy in a pack of wolves

that wants to be an alpha.

Seeking acceptance, but she has her own.

Independant

 

Rambunctious 

She’s a tornado in an open field

that doesn’t do much damage.

Sort of crazy, sort of wild, but not destructive.

Reasonable

 

Adamant

She’s a one way street

that’s got a few turns in it.

Set up for a detour, but it’s not preferred.

Adjustable

 

Naive

She’s a child

that knows not to veer too far.

So trusting, but wary of danger.

Nervous

 

Descriptive

She’s a watchful writer

that can’t find the words every time.

Seeing the world in detail, but lacking words.

Distracted

 

Accomplished

She’s a valedictorian

that works her butt off for those grades.

So much time spent, but she could still spend more.

Aspiring

 

 

Mad and Merciful

Insecure and Independent

Rambunctious and Reasonable

Adamant and Adjustable

Naïve and Nervous

Descriptive and Distracted

Accomplished and Aspiring

 

She is a walking paradox, and she loves it.
