I am who I am
A young girl with old ways, deep inside her
Beng the only child, the first grandchild, the first niece
The first me
Knowing ever since I was knee high
Something about me would be different
Different than what people saw on the outside, ever since I entered this world
I knew I would think out of the box
I knew I would be that one person everybody looks at and says
"You must have been here before"
An old phrase saying, I have a mind set and acting ways
as if I was born in the 1960's or 1970's
One special thing that comes with this old soul is
being a Christian or in people terms, a "church girl".
And for that, to my aunt, thank you for those church trips.
Trips I didn't even know I was going on.
To the lessons and messages that had my heart beating and ringing
To a feeling I never felt before
To those trips on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights
is what helped this old soul become who I am today.
So if I was in the dictionary described as one word or two words put together
it would be "old-soul" defined as
One in a million
A future thinker
A lesson learned
An Old Soul, That's Me
